Walk: NOC 02
Location: Mountain walks between Heol Senni and Ystradfelte
Directions: Aim for Ystradfelte but set your sat nav to travel via Heol Senni. Turn right out of castle heading north. With the Crai Reservoir on your left, take left turning up a narrow lane, signposted Heol Senni. Just before you get to Heol Senni (a clutch of houses) and before the bridge over a stream, turn right up a very narrow single track and continue for some miles. Eventually you come to a T junction. Turn right and head up a steep switch-back mountain road (some nice views looking back the way you came). The road levels out at the top of the mountain and there are various spots you can walk up here. However for the purposes of walk NOC 02, you turn left into a picnic woodland car parking area at the end of the long straight stretch. You could get someone to drop you off here and return the car to the castle, leaving you to walk back.
