Book Description

15 Aug 2012 British Walking
This handy guidebook offer 30 circular day routes right across the popular holiday destination that is the Gower Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, taking in the wide variety of landscapes and ranging from 4km to 22km long. The peninsula is understandably famous for its spectacularly steep, rugged coastline and perfect golden sand beaches but this guide also takes walkers to the inland valleys, hills and ridges little expored by most holidaymakers. Some coastal areas are well frequented, such as those around Langland, Oxwich and Port Eynon but this guidebook concentrates on the areas where walkers can really escape the crowds to find peace and solitude. Along the way, the author provides a wealth of information on plants, animals, geology, history and archaeology of a region with something for everyone all within a compact area easily accessible from Swansea and Mumbles. Routes are illustrated with OS mapping extracts and inspiring photography and accompanied by a route summary table to help you choose your walks to suit your location and ability and useful websites for planning your trip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book of circular walks 26 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A handy small guide giving you lots of different length walks around the beautiful Gower peninsula. It appears up to date and is sufficienty detialed to ensure that we didn't get lost. Not all the walks have a handy pub strategically placed, though most do and anyway I'm not sure that the lack of (good) pubs in this area is necessarily the author's fault! Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gower walks for the energetic 15 Aug 2013
By Mark
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Why invest in another Gower walking guide, when there are already so many available? This has a good range of walks, including many that are longer than the norm. The NW of Gower -- too often overlooked -- is particularly well represented.

All are well explained and illustrated, with useful snippets of Gower history/geology etc. thrown in. Best used with an OS but this is not essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful adjunct. 13 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As I am going camping on the Gower in June I bought this book for ideas for walks on my visit. It has a wide variety of walks for all ages and abilities and I was very impressed by the variety of walks. I just wish the maps were a little clearer.
