After walking in North wales for 20 years and using a number of guide books, I believe this book of John Gillham is excellent, particularly for those looking for a guide to easy or moderate walks. The only questionable area is the title as it includes walks further afield to Aberystwyth, Anglesey and east to Llangollen and Montgomery. I have covered about one quarter so far and have yet to be disappointed and most times been pleasantly surprised by routes which have been much quieter than expected; only recently my wife,our flat coat and I walked in the Rhinogs for the day and met only wild goats. The guides are clear, informative and obviously geared to our walking speeds as the times advised are remarkably accurate. Highly recommended.

Recently I visited Wales for a walking holiday and took this book alang with me, out of the book I did 5 of the walks from easy to moderate and this book was very helpful. Easy to understand directions, places to visit whilst walking, if you are a dog lover this book tells you when and where you can take your dog and let free to roam. The only thing I found irritatting was that on some of the walks no mileage is given between points. but a very good guide book,
