Walking- Trevor Rocks And Castell Dinas Bran

Views from above Trevor Rocks

On Friday Ben and I went walking with Liz and Connie above the carboniferous limestone escarpment called Trevor Rocks. Our walk started with Nick taking us by car to the starting point. We followed the permissive path and climbed up until we were walking along the top edge of Trevor Rocks with panoramic views of Llangollen, Castell Dinas Bran, the Dee valley and Llantisilio Mountains. We followed a three mile circular walk found in 'Walks Around Llangollen And The Dee Valley' by David Berry (Kittiwake ISBN 978 1 902302 43 0) and then walked back along the road to walk around the lower levels of Castell Dinas Bran back to Llangollen Wharf. It's a great little book and well worth the £4.95!

What fantastic views. On our first canal holiday I walked to Horseshoe Falls. I look forward to our impending return to the UK and life on our new boat. Perhaps I will then be able to follow in your footsteps!

We'll look out for you on the cut. You'll find us in Llangollen from November to the end of March as it's our favourite winter mooring.
