We were delighted to feature a blog post from Geoff Allan, author of the superb new book, ‘The Scottish Bothy Bible’, earlier this autumn.Geoff picked out one of his favourite spots for us, a remote spot deep in the West Highlands.
The North End Of The Nantlle Ridge
Once known as Snowdonia’s best kept secret, the Nantlle Ridge lies southwest of the Snowdon massif
These days, the narrow crests and rocky peaks attract their fair share of walkers and scramblers, but rarely suffer from the overcrowding that afflicts other parts of the National Park.If the views alone don’t take your breath away, then the sharp breezes that whip in from the Irish Sea will finish the job.
To walk the whole ridge in one attempt presents major logistical problems; the six summits are laid out in a line, meaning there is no easy way to reach all the peaks without a long track back along one of the adjacent valleys.
