I recently began a walk along the Ceredigion Coastal Path which, as part of the Wales Coast Path, runs from Cardigan in the south over 60 miles to Ynyslas on the northern edge of the county. This is my diary of the event.

Location: Cwm Tydu
A chance encounter with a couple of guys tipped me off to a campsite in Cwm Tydu. The middle to last part of path from Llangranog to Cwm Tydu was cut from the edge of the Hirallt cliff face, the highest point along the Ceredigion coastline. It rose sharply up and in some places I had to mind to watch my footing as a mis-timed trip with the weight of my rucksack on my back would surely have been the end of me. I rested once more at a National Trust farm or estate that I didn’t catch the name of, before making the last effort for Cwm Tydu. The lure of showers and water was greater than the lure of the open sky and so here I am, tent up, clean, clothes washed in the shower, with an ample supply of water and ready to heat up a can of vegetable curry.
Tomorrow is 3.8 miles to New Quay and then a 6.5 mile push to Aberaeron. And then maybe a day at leisure. It’s then 7.4 miles to Llanrhystud for another stop and then 10.6 miles to Aberystwyth then a final 10 miles to Borth and Ynslas. Is there a bus back from Borth? Where can I get it back to? Aberaeron maybe, for a post walk rest and when is the last bus? And how will the coming rain affect my plans?
