|On the top of the escarpment, looking west|
This morning Liz and I took the dogs on a three hour walk. We climbed up towards Castell Dinas Bran, followed the signs to Offa's Dyke Path and took a left to walk for about half a mile along the road to take a rising track opposite a stile........it seemed much further than half a mile!
The path climbs up a rocky gully with a trickling stream at first and at the finger post we turned right to walk along the top of the limestone escarpment. Going was slow as we scrambled up to the top of the gulley, on hands and feet in places but once up there the views were good. The dogs enjoyed themselves along the permissive path although Connie wanted to play and Ben wasn't interested.

We came back down onto the road and walked back towards Castell Dinas Bran before taking a left to follow the road downhill. The route took us over a cattle grid and down a steep path next to a house called 'Tan y Bont' taking us down to the back of the 'Sun Trevor Inn'. Nick and Eric came by car to meet us for lunch while the dogs stretched out on the slate floor of the bar. Lovely meals but we didn't feel like walking back to Llangollen after eating our steaks so we had a lift back with Nick and Eric.
