A Walk On Trevor Rocks

Velvet Hill & Llantisilio Mountains

Castell Dinas Bran from Trevor Rocks

A bit closer!

Liz and Connie.....enjoying the views
Today we started a walk with Nick taking Liz, the dogs and myself by car to our starting point below Trevor Rocks. It meant we could climb up a path leading to a rocky gully about half a mile  north of Castell Dinas Bran without having to start off at Llangollen on foot. We crossed the rocky route across the stream  and enjoyed a walk along the escarpment, passing groups of climbers getting ready to climb the limestone slabs. Marvellous views is all I can say and the sun was shining so it was a great day for a walk. We came down a path,  walked back along the road to the back of the castle ruins where we made our way around the hill and back down to Llangollen.

While we were walking we thought about Sunday lunch and decided to try the Wynstay Arms. Nick and Eric agreed and a very nice meal followed. We decided against desserts as the icecream shop was open and a rum and raisin ice cream had my name on it! Delicious!
