This was a short walk I had been keeping back to do with my daughter Nicola, as she had done a similar walk whilst she was an undergraduate at Aberystwyth some years ago. We parked at Borth railway station and proceeded to walk down the main road in Borth. The day was very sunnyy with a stiff cool breeze at our backs. We could just make out the Lleyn hills but later glorious views
opened up to the north across the Dovey estuary to Aberdovey and the Tarren Hills which were snow capped. The first couple of miles were a series of steep and downs, but because we were fresh, they presented no problems. The path passed through Clarach Bay which appeared to be just a slightly run-down holiday park with static homes. The final climb up to Constitution Hill was quite easy with gentle gradient. The top offered a beautiful vista over and down to Aberystwyth. We descended down the steep path , passing over the funicular railway to the promenade where we traditionally
“kicked the Bar”.
We made our way to the Wetherspoons in the town, Pen Yr Orsaf and had a nice Sunday roast with a pint of Doombar before catching the 13:30 train back to Borth The lovely warm sunshine made this a lovely walk, albeit 6 miles and only taking 2.5hrs.
