#57.CASTELL DINAS BRAN.30-10-11.

With the Essex girl's stopping a second night me and Julie had arranged to meet them in Llangollen on a glorious sunny calm day,we were going to assess Donna's injury and see if they fancied a walk locally.Donna said she felt a bit sore but wanted to try another walk.Sioban had made many journey's to Snowdonia down the year's and had alway's wanted to climb up to Castell Dinas Bran so this is what we decided on.Parking in the main car park in the town centre we walked across the River Dee and took the path that run's along side Ysgol Dinas Bran.It was really warm today and we walked at a gentle pace having lot's of stop's to take in the view's and for them to take photo's.Donna did well and we were soon at the castle were we had a good look around.
      I took them down the north side toward's the Eglwyseg before picking up the lane that lead's back down to the town.Taking the second footpath sigh we entered the field's where the path goes through a farm before dropping down to the Llangollen Canal.
    A nice gentle stroll brought us back into the town where Rich and Eva were waiting for us.We said our goodbyes before we headed for a sunday roast to the White Water Hotel.
   We walked 4 mile with 1,200 feet of ascent.

MILEAGE     404.5
ASCENT      100,650
TOPS            99.
