84. Llanrhystud to Aberystwyth


As I wanted a quite simple and short days walking, I opted for the 10 miles section from Llanrhystud . I drove to Aberystwyth  and parked in the long stay car park for the princely sum of £1.40 all day. The plan was to catch the  07:40 bus #701 to Llanrhystud.

I rejoined the coastal path which emerges briefly on the main road and continued  to walk down a lane that led to a deserted holiday home park. The path then took to fields which where fortunately not that soaked.

The going was quite easy, and the only real climb of the day was gentle. Although there were a few up and downs, the walk was predominantly on the level.

Approaching Aberystwyth

Views were very hazy although I could still see my ultimate destination of Aberystwyth from about 7 miles away. A very stiff breeze blowing from the south-west did not hinder my progress. By the time I reached Aberystwyth the sun was out although it was still quite chilly and windy.  I crossed the Afon Ystwyth and Rheidol rivers to finish my walk in just 3 hrs.
