The lake below Rhinog Fach is called Llyn Hywel. The hill above it is called Y Lether. The Rhinogs are isolated from the rest of Snowdonia, a place of shattered rock and heather although Fach is pleasantly grassy. They’re a place to linger, more an area than a collection of hills. I’ve wild camped below Rhinog Fawr two or three times. I’ve not wild camped over this way. That will be a plan for 2015. This year, 2014, I planned to wild camp at the Cregennan Lakes as part of a walk up Cadair Idris. I didn’t manage to do it, nor have a trip to Scotland which is getting overdue. I did however walk again in the Pyrenees. It’s good to have plans but bad weather changes them. The Pyrenees in summer have been the main attraction for the last six years and in that respect every year has been good.
