About your host

I am passionate about the mountains of North Wales and love showing people some of the hidden gems to be found not too far off the beaten track. My mountain qualifications include a Mountain Leadership award (2013), and a Rock Climbing Instructor award (2006). I was born in Scotland and raised in the highlands and have been walking in the mountains since I was a child. There is still nowhere else…

What we’ll do

I would love to take you hill walking in Snowdonia and show you the fascinating insights I have gained over thirty years of mountaineering in the UK. This experience will take you on a circular walk over the Moelwyn mountains, through abandoned quarries full of industrial heritage, and back to the start via the stunning Cwmorthin valley. 11km, with around 800m uphill. One or two bits can be quite…

What else you should know

We will be meeting at the Lakeside Cafe near Blaenau Ffestiniog, but will then drive a short way to re-park after meeting. Transport to / from the cafe at Tanygrisau is not included in the experience

What to bring

We are going to be spending a day in the Welsh Mountains, and so you will need to have your own wind and waterproof clothing (including hat and gloves at all times of year), as well as sturdy walking boots.
Packed lunch, snacks, and enough drink (water, tea-coffee in a flask) for the day
A day rucksack

Where you'll be

This day out will include the following mountain summits - Moelwyn Bach (710m) - Moelwyn Mawr (770m) - Moel yr Hydd (647m) and will visit the abandoned slate quarries of Conglog/ Glyn Ffestioniog and Cwmorthin. The walk back down the Cwmorthin valley offers a relaxing end to the day. In the right weather the reflections in the Llyn Cwmorthin are quite spectacular.
