A morning walk from Pandy over the hill of Ysgyryd Fawr to reach the train station at Abergavenny
Distance: 12km; Ascent: 410m; Overcast, windy with occasional light snow; Solo
After yesterday's very long day walking in the Black Mountains, I decided that something shorter was in order for today. I needed to end up in Abergavenny in order to catch the train home this afternoon, so the hill of Ysgyryd Fawr seemed like an obvious choice. It was snowing lightly as I set off walking from Pandy just before 9am, initially along the Offa's Dyke Path with good views of Ysgyryd Fawr ahead.
