I really like these books but the main problem I find with them is finding the starting point of the walk if you do not have an full size OS map (or GPS). It is not easy to identify it from the small extract of the OS map included with each walk. Each start point needs to be given a much fuller description with road names or numbers and directions. On several of the walks we tried, we had difficulty but once we found the starting point, the walks were easy to follow and informative. They are well chosen and I like the fact they are graded so you start off doing a couple of easier walks before progressing to the harder walks. Saying that, even the hardest walks were not too strenuous.

A good walking guide for those new to the Brecon Beacons. Good for all, from families with young children to those without children. Walks are graded in difficulty. We went with two young children and the book was invaluable for getting straight to the best parts of the Brecon Beacons.

First of all I would thoroughly recommend a visit to the Brecon Beacons; I would compare it with the Lake District for fantastic views.

We only managed one of the walks in the book during our stay: over Tor y Foel. This turned out to be the best walk of our holiday. The directions were pretty, good although the start - often the hardest part - could have been more clearly described (tip: keep close to the wall and follow the sheep track).

We look forward to returning and trying out some of the other walks in the guide.

You should not really go walking in the Brecon Beacons (or any other mountain range), not knowing how to use an OS map or a compass. NEVER rely solely on your guidebook. A guide book shows you the route, but it should not be used instead of an OS map, but rather alongside it. Before setting off on any walk, you should find the route that the walk takes on your OS map, and use your OS map as the 'guide'. Tom Hutton the author, writes for 'Trail' magazine, and he would agree with me that you should not use the guide book on its own. As regards not knowing the starting point, again you need to learn how to read a six figure grid reference. All you need to find anything anywhere in the UK, is a six figure grid reference. The grid reference pinpoints a location, and is very precise. I spend hours looking at OS maps, particularly of the Brecon Beacons. Once you get used to them, you start to see the landscape in 3D, and you get a very accurate picture.
