The walk returns via Craig y Dorth with outstanding views to the Brecon Beacons and overlooking Monmouth. We end our walk with tea on the terrace of Caer Llan admiring the landscape we have just walked through.

For your rucksack: A packed lunch. Tea and cakes will be served at Caer Llan at the end of the walk. A camera and binoculars for the superb views.
