Olchon Valley and Hatterall Ridge

On Monday, with lockdown in Wales lifted, Steffi and Carmen made an early start from West Wales to cross the border for a day on the English side of the Brecon Beacons.


We headed over to Longtown, in the valley at the foot of Hatterall Ridge and climbed up via The Cats Back, continuing on to Hay Bluff before heading back via the Olchon Valley. Wonderful views and So Many Greens!


We ended up walking 17 miles on The Black Hill - a bit more than planned. We were all very grateful for Phil's flapjack (plus a pot and a half of tea) when we got back, followed by butternut squash curry. Just right.
