Most travel guides suggest that the Ll?n Coastal Path can be completed in 10 simple walks, perhaps over a week or two. Jean and her husband Jim, who have been visiting Llŷn regularly since 1991, took a more leisurely approach, dividing the journey into 42 return walks and completing their ramble in August 2021 after just over three years!

Further Information:

The walks are described in detail and include QR codes, enabling readers to follow parts or all of the path if they wish to. Jean frequently rambles away from the path to describe her experiences of learning to speak Welsh, to reflect on memories evoked along the way and to describe discoveries that she made about the people and places in this very special part of north Wales. The journey is rudely interrupted in 2020 by the Covid-19 pandemic and Jean describes the changes that occur in Llŷn and in her own life, until she and Jim are finally able to return to complete their adventure.

The book is a rich and details exploration of the peninsula as well as being a record of the people and culture of the area. Books Council of Wales report
