OUT & ABOUT : NORTH WALES.
A nice jaunt into the (North) Welsh countryside, and what beautiful countryside it is! Taking in a hike up Tryfan, Wales' 12th highest peak, and up to the North Ridge - the toughest climb, with an ascent of around 8000ft completed and stickered in just two hours!
The adventure didn't stop there, taking in a kayak around Puffin Island (Ynys Seiriol in Welsh) off the coast of Anglesey, this is uninhabited and is designated a Special Protection Area on account of its large cormorant population. Other sea birds such as Guillemot, Razorbill, Shag, Kittiwake and Eider ducks are also found. Don't expect to see many Puffins though as the Puffins from which the island gets its name were decimated by the accidental introduction of rats in the late 19th century.
