Mid Wales

Mid Wales

Welcome to QMD: Quality Mountain Days. Dedicated to helping you achieve quality days in the mountains. All walks are written up as basic route descriptions with some grid references. They are provided as a ‘Bare Bones Template’ for the walk. There are many interesting features and sites, wildlife and plants, viewpoints and alternatives, to each walk. Part of the adventure is finding these for yourselves.

Mid Wales has some amazing country but few mountains. Drygarn Fawr and Gorllwyn in the Elan Valley and the compact Pumlumon Range further to the north provide some opportunities for QMDs and wonderfully remote days out along with some wild camping.

Elan Valley Area

Reservoirs, hills, two mountains, ancient roads, standing stones, history. The standing stone on Pen Maen-wern seen shining like a single brilliant white tooth in midsummer sunlight from Drygarn Fawr is humbling.
