Castell Y Gaer Circular 

Sunday's holiday hike was a small circular loop from our beautiful holiday house in Wales. We started off at the lovely wee churchyard (or Kirk as we call them back home) just a minutes walk from our coastal abode for the week.

What followed was a rather steep climb, thankfully not for long, that took us straight to the site of the iron age fort. Some absolutely stunning views from here, which we were all pretty thankful of, as it gave us a little recovery time.

We continued on uphill following the waymarkers which turned us right through a farm, where we made our way respectfully across the marked route under the watchful eyes of the local sheep.

The trees here seem to grow out boulders apparently hehe!

The route follows the Wales Coast Path and eventually we cut off downhill heading back towards the road. It was here we happened upon a beautiful dragonfly (?) which after teasing us with its speed skills, finally posed for a photo!

Following the track down, we crossed the road to attempt to make our way to the beach, however we soon discovered signs which told us this was private access only across the train tracks.

So, we diverted back to Llwyngril via the road (no pavement or track here!) and followed the yarn bombed path past the train station to the beach! This was my favourite knotted artwork....can't think why 😉

The beach was very stoney but the sun provided a beautiful display for us....

so it was rude not to take advantage.....

After a wee seat enjoying the calm of the ocean we headed back to the house, passing some rather interesting chairs 🤔

And upon our return were rewarded soon after with a beautiful sunset ❤️
