The views are breathtaking and with you most of the way. You start by walking up a fairly steep tractor path into an even steeper uphill path in the woods... not for the faint hearted but with slow initial pace anyone can do it ......More

A varied walk through fields, wooded areas and then the open hillside which gave splendid views as far away as the Bristol Channel. A great walk for all ages, we were between 65 & 79

We walked up here one morning, on a clear day nice views as far as the sea. There were not crowds and it isn’t a conveyor belt of day trippers like so many walks these days. Highly recommend

Not a huge climb but great for families to climb and have a picnic on top with great views. Born 4 miles away the Skirrid was a regular for me. Fantastic views.

This mountain was suggested to me and it certainly didn’t disappoint. We end up with our 8 & 10 year old girls and they found it no problem. We took the longer (although muddier) route which was still only 4 miles from start to finish....More

Driving into Abergavenny at the end of a day of castle adventures, stopped off to show the kids the infamous Skirrid hill to the east of Abergavenny. I'd climbed up the Skirrid a couple of times as a teenager as part of the Three Peaks...More

National Trust payable parking. Took a clockwise path which was very muddy in places and scrambled the north side, coming back was the easier and more direct route. Recommended, moderate family walk.

A deceiving steep and hilly start, through the woods, which breaks out into scenic and simply beautiful views of the Welsh landscape. A short climb - approx 2 hrs there and back. Parking is hassle free and plentiful - small charge which is reasonable. Easy...More
