The rolling hills and bald mountains around Ponterwyd must have made very challenging walking for George Borrow. In particular, I don't know how he managed to find his way south through the Plynlimon range. The roads up through Nant-y-Moch and Angler's Retreat look wild and desolate. I imagine you could get yourself quite turned around up amongst those mountains and hill farms! One of those Welsh places, I bet, where if you were to get lost and have to spend the night , you'd come down either a poet or a madman!
