Long run with Marcus from Llyn Brianne north westward.
Sunny but very windy, especially early on - so upgraded to hat, gloves and second base layer in addition to the jacket. Didn't regret it and only really started getting hot in the last 15 minutes.
To minimise the wind went out along the Doethie valley - which was signed as the "Cambrian Way", and was pretty nice - both in terms of being pretty and a reasonable path (except when swimming through frogspawn). Several bits of interest, including what appeared to be a ruined village.
Things got a bit tougher as we turned at the youth hostel - marked as bridleways but really not well used. First bit leg us down to quite a deep stream crossing, with bits of tussocks after before getting onto a path for a short section. Most of the hill "Carn Penrhiwyllwydog" had been recently burned so probably made the going much easier but it was still pretty hard work.
Return was mostly on a good vehicle track so pace was good. Plenty more good views. Last climb back up to the reservoir wasn't much fun and was where I started overheating. Went the long way round whilst Marcus cut the corner and got some photos with a few out and backs across the dam whilst waiting.
Quite pleased to get out onto the fells again, but this one could take a bit of work to join up with everything else.
Glad of the food stop in Llandovery on the way back. Been a long day.
