Aberystwyth and surrounding walks

Here are a few walks that we suggest to take in the local surroundings and area.  There are obviously many many more walks that you can do in the area but this is a good starting place if you are staying for the weekend and looking for some pleasant walks to try.  They vary in ability and length. We would always recommend suitable footwear and clothing and for longer walks we would recommend purchasing an Ordinance Survey Map.  Always ensure that you have suitable food and water for the length of walk you are undertaking or to ensure that you can purchase some along the way or at your final destination.
