Llangattock and Brecon Beacons May 2015

A short midweek trip to South Wales which co-coincided with the General Election.

Looking down to Llangorse Lake between the showers

Stopped off for a wild and windy run up Mynydd Llangorse on the way down before staying at Llangattock Mountain Bunkhouse, aka Llangattock Youth Hostel ,which is located high up off the mountain road between Crickhowell and Brynmawr.
The next day was still very windy but this helped to keep the rain away and after walking round the south side of Mynydd Llangattock some welcome shelter was provided by the dramatic northern scarp slope.

The Lonely Shepherd

After another night at the bunkhouse I moved west of the Brecon Beacons to stay at the eponymously named Youth Hostel (but which is really Llwyn-y-celyn in old money). By now the weather had calmed down and it was fairly bright and sunny so I did some point to point navigation round the geocaches on the Fan Fawr hills from the top road south of Heol Senni.



Some very wet caches which seem to have been placed to attract as much moisture as possible!
A very good midweek trip altogether.
