This is my favourite walk in the Brecon Beacons; the view across the north face of the sandstone escarpment from Fan Foel is the finest in South Wales. The long ridge of Fan Hir also makes for a fine hour of walking on the journey in. It's a fair old walk, too: Fan Brycheiniog is 802m. Start from Glyntawe, which is a bustling little town thanks to the nearby Dan-yr-Ogof caves. Buses running between Brecon and Ystredgynlais stop at Glyntawe; the nearest train station is Ammanford.
