Lucky man!


That's very good of your Phil, appreciated. As it happens, I do have a couple of questions...


PM incoming shortly!

Have you done Fan Frynach? If not its a nice walk, very closer to the main peaks but I always find MUCH quieter.  I have a 7 miler that I do that is very enjoyable.

I haven't. But I have been looking at it as it seems there is a very direct route up there from the Storey Arms.


Do you have the route in a sendable format please? I'd be interested to look at it. PM me if you prefer.


Thanks TVW.  O0

Check your inbox, Fan Fawr is directly opposite Storey Arms, Fan Frynach is as rightly said much quieter than the main central Beacons with several ways up and variations on walks to get there including a couple not marked on any map  O0

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for their excellent advice.


We had a couple of problems with the car which didn't help and the weather was pretty poor at points but we had a wonderful time and have plenty of things that have been added to our must do list for our next visit.


A special thank you to Phil1960 who was a huge and appreciated help.


We're really falling in love with the Brecon Beacons. Excited to go back once the colours change in the Autumn.


Thanks a lot guys, you're all great folks.
