Well, the plan was to take the new tarp and bivvy out for three days in the Rhinogs for some serious walking. A note to self is that every August that I go to Wales with my mate Ben for his birthday it lashes it down, so with torrential rain and cloud below 300 metres we sacked the wild camping. We did however, find this gem of a walk through an ancient landscape which gives the feel of being a lot higher that it is.

Standing stones abound and there is a hill-fort to visit. The walk can be boggy in places, but this is the Rhinogs after all and we've used some road-walking along quiet lanes to avoid the more trackless parts. Remember that rights of way on the map don't always equate to tracks on the ground. This is especially the case in the Rhinogs.

Please don't be put off by the photos; on a clear day the views across Cardigan Bay, up to the Llyn Peninsula and over Snowdonia are stunning.

Some on lead walking along roads, mostly off lead in fields. Some livestock may be encountered. A number of stiles, so rated as 3 (would be a 4 for my collie as he loves stiles, but some dogs don't I know).
