A 18 mile walk with 5500ft of accent combining the Arran Ridge and Southern Arrans following nuttalls route.Pen y Allt Uchaf, Gwaun Lydan, Aran Fawddwy, Wrw y Ddafad-ddu, Aran Benllyn, Gwaun y Llwyni, Waun camddwr, Glasgwm and Pen y Bryn-fforchog.The woodland beneath the last top has been completely felled and so the return route Nuttall suggests is really difficult.From the free car park at the end of the minor road in Cwm Cywarch three miles north of Dinas MawddwyWAYNE ROWLETT29/06/2019

Long walk from Cwm Cywarch around Glasgwm, Waun Camddwr, Aran Fawddwy and Drysgol with Sue and Shelley. Just over 10 miles, 7 hours walking and 1300m of ascent. Didn't see another person all day, amazing day out. Ridiculously windy, positively dangerous on some exposed parts of Glasgwm and Aran FawddwyCangarwbach13/04/2019

From Aran Fawddwy. Headed down via the south top, at first south, then west to pick up the path by the fence SSW through the bogs to the summit. Also visited the alternative summit. Onwards to Glasgwm. With JdF.Man of Kernow107/05/2018
On round of AF and Glasgwm from Cywarch with Mark T.Topographer5707/05/2018
10.2 mile walk from Cwm Cywarch car park followed nice footpath to bottom of Glasgwm, turned right onto boggy track to Nuttall Waun Camddwr then followed trails across stream onto Gwaun Y Llwyni. Returned the same way then onto Glasgwm, after followed easy ridge towards Y Gribin. Descended to col up to Foel Benddin then slogged back onto Y Gribin, followed old miners lane back to road then car park, lovely sunny day with high cloud, great views north and west towards Aran Fawddwy and the rest of Snowdonia and south to Plynlimon. Saw 5 people all day!DanTrig14/04/2018

Really, really wet underfoot.noxibis04/01/2017

Aran Fawddwy wildcamp to Drws-y-Nant. In the hot, clear summer weather we had, this was a very colourful and attractive bit of wild, albeit still very boggy. The descent to bwlch with Glasgwm and then to the forest in Cwm-ochr is a mostly horrendous squelch fest but the path is clear enough.Jake99416/08/2016

Drove down to the head of valley, go past chapel and phone box, excellent parking for 40+ cars now at SH 85250 18856, complete with loo! Walked short distance back down road and then lane leading to ford and then good track up to the bwlch to the north of Y Gribin. Climbed this and then the good path to summit cairn of Glasgwym. On to Waun Camddwr and Gwaun y Llwyni.nordicstar12/07/2016
Left bike at top of pass on the A470. Did Waun Camddwr Glasgwm and and finally Pen y bryn fforchog. Forest had been cut down so I didn't think it was easy to follow the nuttalls route. Went down to the pass and cycled back - mainly free wheeling!johnjennison08/06/2016
