The sun shone this morning – we were promised a whole day of sunshine – and set off to walk on the moorlands of the Monts d’Arrées, a 7km Circuit de Roc’h Bichoureu guided by the excellent Wendy Mewes. We extended the walk to include Roch’h Trévézel.
Park in Botmeur and set off up the (quiet) road.
Soon we could see the Monts D’Arrées, and this view of St Michel de Brasparts.
There was a gorgeous scent in the air – are these Persicaria Wallichii, or related? Help!
There is only a brief uphill walk and then you are in the moorlands – lovely, and fresh. The ‘Monts’ are really just hills, but it is open country and there are views. Living in a town, as I do, I love to be ‘up’ like this.
This is an area of grass, heather, broom, and gorse.
Next came a Neolithic construction, and a church – not forgetting the cup of coffee!
