Obviously the route to a the UKCC Level 2 Coach is one (long) option. Are there any other options open to him? I remember going to a CW coaching...

A couple of us are thinking of heading to the Tyne Tour on the way back from Scotland and looking for relatively cheap accommodation that provides bedding. I've been struggling to find anywhere by searching Google etc. Does anybody have any recommendations?

Re: Tree in the Ogwen

Looks likes someones had a go at some of the longer branches, still plenty of tree left there to cause a problem though. Again, it's on the "lower ogwen" so unless you intending to paddle to the sea not really a problem.

Re: Important: Lower Tryweryn take out

The public right of way along the river only starts down stream of the bridge. So according to the OS map there is no public right of way from the river to the estate car parking near Lowri's house.
