Croft Ambrey and Bircher

An old favourite… It does what favourites should – it’s a very enjoyable walk from start to finish. There’s woodland and open grassland, with wonderful views in most directions (though not all at the same time…). Below the hill fort at Croft Ambrey, the old Scots pines provide foreground interest to some of the most attractive scenery in this part of the world, where the Herefordshire hills meet the Welsh border country. To the south-west, the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons form a distant horizon, where Pen y Fan could be mistaken for a dormant volcano (it isn’t!). It’s another fine day too, the sunshine warm for a time. What more could one want?
