Three people and three dogs made the long trek up onto the top of the world - as far as Brittany goes - in beautiful hot, sunny weather. And on the way down, we found treasure! Lovely Pebble was Dog of the Day.
We meet in the parking behind the ancient Abbaye du Relec for a 2pm start. This is one of the finest walks of the Monts d'Arrée (10.5kms) with moorland paths, craggy hills and long views. Gradual climbs in the first half of the route to reach the ridge above Le Relec, then downhill all the way! The abbey itself (dating from 1132) is situated in an idyllic spot in the Queffleuth valley with many good walks on offer in the vicinity.
Brittany Walks has been based in Brittany, France since 2004. The regular programme of walks ended in 2015, but there are still occasional guided visits to places of interest to discover the landscape and history of the region. English is the language for events. See www.brittanywalks.com (link below) for details. The Brittany Walks website is full of information about walking in Brittany.
