This was a nice short 12 mile pull into Barmouth where I planned to have two days off as trying to sort things out on a Bank holiday can be tricky.
Unfortunately the path spends a lot of time twisting and turning and going back on itself and doing a lot of climbing then steep descents then back up again! Also you don’t see much of the sea till you get close to Barmouth at Fairbairn.
They have a narrow gauge railway there that cheerfully wends it’s way around the town.
To get to Barmouth you cross the real railway bridge with trains trundling across next to you.
Barmouth is a splendid seaside town with fairground rides, donkeys and fish and chips.
A good place for a rest.
