Directions to Skanda Vale “the temple”

Do not blindly follow your Sat Nav systems between the temple and Gilfach Wen. The route any Sat Nav takes you will be the most direct route on roads only suitable for 4×4’s.
However, it is a very pleasant drive through the countryside to Skanda Vale from Gilfach Wen on a route suitable for cars or minibuses if you follow these directions.
