This circular walk takes you through the countryside surrounding the Carmarthenshire town of Llandeilo. It makes use of two of the waymarked footpaths which run through the area.
The walk starts in the town near to the train station. From here you head east to cross the River Towy before heading south to Tregeyb Wood. This area is also a nature reserve with some nice woodland trails. Ancient woodland (predominantly oak and ash), grassland and new native woodland are the prominent features.
The route then follows countryside paths to Carreg Cennen Castle. The castle sits on an elevated limestone precipice with fabulous views over the lovely Brecon Beacons countryside. There are a series of good footpaths taking you around the grounds and an invigorating climb up to the castle itself.
After exploring the castle you pick up public footpaths heading north west Gelligroes and Ffairfach where you cross the River Cennen. The route continues north, crossing the single-arched Llandeilo Bridge which was completed in 1848 and is Grade II listed. From here it is a short stroll back into the town centre and the finish point of the walk.
To continue your walking in the area head west of the town to Dinefwr Park. Here you'll find a 12th-century castle, a historic house, an 18th-century landscaped park and a medieval deer park. The town is nicely positioned on the edge of the Brecon Beacons where there are miles of great trails to try.
