The second interesting collection of walks varying in difficulty using the recently re-opened trains and stations of the Welsh Highland Railway to link the starts and finishes. Comprising clear directions and maps, with valuable information about sites of local interest, history, legends and famous personalities connected with the area.
Originally an industrial line, connecting slate quarries with the ports of Caernarfon and Porthmadog, the re-opening of the narrow-gauge Welsh Highland Railway as a tourist attraction offers the potential of combining a heritage railway journey with strolls along river banks and lake shores, heritage towns and sea-side walks as well as rambles to the top of the most accessible hills and mountain peaks.
Published in two volumes, these guides offer great walks in the magnificent Snowdonia National Park, where the mountains of Eryri meet the coast.
