Retracing the trail of 18th and 19th century cattle drovers, we head west for Llandovery. As we continue on through the remote Abergwesyn pass, our afternoon stop will be at Gigrin Farm. The Powells have been feeding the, formerly rare, Red Kites since the 1990’s, and they create a spectacular sight as scores of the distinctively marked birds swoop down from the surrounding treetops to take their share of food.
Discover an ancient island dwelling - Llangorse Lake and its crannog, a ruined abbey - Llanthony Prima, a Norman castle with an Elizabethan garden, scenery to ‘dwell upon the inward eye’, the Gospel Pass, and the most books in one place in the whole world (apart from the British Library and the Bodleian) in Hay-on-Wye. A memorable last day.
