A circular walk around and over Ysgyryd Fawr (The Skirrid), near Abergavenny. On a clear day, this gives beautiful views of the Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons and surrounding borders countryside. This way of doing it means that you have a gentle downwards ridge walk with the Bristol Channel in the distance for the second half of the walk. The Brecon Beacons is a very remote/exposed area and it can be easy to lose your way, so remember the usual walking rules: be prepared with a paper map and compass as well as snacks/drinks and appropriate clothing/footwear. At certain times of the year (after wet weather), this walk can be very muddy and slippery in places, so it is recommended to wear stout boots and have walking poles in these conditions. You will need to negotiate a gate and some steps, but there are no stiles. There is no livestock on route. OS Explorer OL13 or Landranger 161. Show more
