Kidwelly and Mynyddygarreg

Event Details

Restarting Events

We are restarting some events with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Walks can once again take place in England, Scotland and Wales, and will be run in accordance with local regulations.   In most cases our walks will allow for a maximum of 30 participants, although a lower limit may be in place following an event's risk assessment.   All walks require every participant to pre-book via the website.

General information

This is a 7 mile approx. walk from Kidwelly to Mynyddygarreg.

Most of the walk is easy walking.

We start off walking back through the main street at Kidwelly and towards The Quay.

***For the men who did a walk near here with Russ, a few years ago, I'm afraid I can't guarantee that the handsome firemen will turn up again!!

From The Quay we walk eastwards on the canal path back to where most will have entered Kidwelly, then cross the road taking a lovely path which starts off as a hard surface, an old railway line and now a minor cycle track, then this turns to a lovely green path heading towards Mynyddygarreg.

All this is easy walking, ideal for this time of year.

At Mynyddygarreg we ascend to the school with a commemorative stone to Ray Gravelle, the Welsh rugby player who lived in the village--see photo.

Then even higher to another viewpoint*** before descending back to the village, maybe coming across a donkey or two, and return to Kidwelly on another lovely path, and walking by the Gwendraeth Fach river  and behind the Castle, back to our start point.

***Anyone not wanting to do this further viewpoint, can wait for the group to return, for a very short while, (15/20 mins) by the school.


Terrain / Difficulty

Mainly easy walking.A bit of an ascent on tarmac to the school and then onto a green path with uneven ground to a higher viewpoint. There are no stiles on this walk.
