TROY AND THE GREAT TOR
TROY D - 'A GREAT WALK FROM LLANRHIDIAN AROUND WHITEFORD' "Well I'd like to start by saying how throughly ashamed I am having lived in Mumbles all my life, and never spent the time getting to know the real Gower. It was such a good day and it flew by. When we headed out, straight away Stuart was spotting various birds and passed me the binoculars to see my first Great Spotted Woodpecker, absolutely beautiful. Minutes later he was off again shouting 'Nuthatch!', 'Goldfinch!' As we plodded happily past old lime kilns, Stu talked about the history of the area, meanings of place names and about the migrant wildfowl that overwhelm the Loughor Estuary during winter. It was also the first time I'd actually been out to the lighthouse at Whiteford point, and it was so much better to have someone there who could tell me about the structure and its past. We finished the day with a beer in well-chosen pub, and Stuart was great company. I was so chilled out afterwards and cant wait to get back out."
STEF G - 'AROUND ILSTON AND PARC LE BREOS'
" I just love Gower and take every opportunity I can to head out there. Many of the walks I'd done previously were either the usual tourist traps or as part of a large group which wasn't really my thing. I wanted to explore a quieter more personal Gower, and so I hired Stuart for an afternoons walk. We started by walking through the beautiful Ilston Cwm, spotting buzzard and other wildlife as we walked. At St Illtyds church Stuart talked about the formation of many of Gowers villages and their unique history. We then weaved our way through hidden paths, and Stuart helped me practise my map reading all the way around. At Parc Le Breos we visited the burial mound and Cathole Cave which were fascinating, before rounding off the day with a cold pint of Pear Cider!! It was a fab day out, and so relaxing to be guided all the way, it allows you to kick-back and enjoy your surroundings. I also brushed up on my navigation which had been a bit rusty to say the least. If you want to explore Gower, treat yourself to a day with Tread Gower!"
