9781852844790: The Lleyn Peninsula Coastal Path: A Walking and Cycle Touring Guide

Guidebook that describes a walkers' route along the 95-mile coastal path that runs around the Lleyn Peninsula of north Wales from Caernarfon to Porthmadoc. The western coastline of England and Wales has three peninsulas pushing out into the sea. The Cornish and Pembroke peninsulas have famous coast paths but the Lleyn peninsula of North Wales is less well known. Although the Lleyn cannot match the sheer scale of its bigger brothers it has no trouble competing when the grandeur of scenery is compared. The route connects the pilgrim sites leading to the remote island of Bardsey, dating back to the 6th century. In doing so it crosses a variety of landscapes from rocky cliffs to secluded bays. The nature of the landscape means that diversions inland have to be made, but although the route crosses hills and rises to over 1000ft in places the coast is always nearby. The Lleyn has many tiny lanes and byways which allow cyclists to complete the route. While many of the cliff paths are only for walkers, cyclists can still sample the delights of this exquisite area and details of cycle routes are included.

Product Description:

This guidebook contains a detailed route description for the entire Lleyn Peninsula coastal path for walkers, as well as route options for both mountain and road bikes. Each chapter ends with two or three shorter circular walks or rides which provide a taste of the different sections of the Lleyn. The coastal path starts in Caernarfon and follows the peninsula anti-clockwise to finish in Portmadoc. Its 95 miles contain a variety of cliff, dune, moor and mountain which is unsurpassed. This route can be completed within a week without too much exertion. There is not a continuous path alongside the Lleyn's shores and to walk the peninsula demands occasional sorties inland for a mile or two, so that existing rights of way can be used. This means ascending hills parallel with the coast, or visiting villages just inland. Nevertheless, the sea is rarely out of sight, and the majority of the walk stays close to the shoreline.
