It was very helpful when planning a short trip to Snowdonia.

Useful yet average.

Lots of information included which somehow feels old or perhaps secondhand. Too sketchy for beginners, as the information is lacking in detail and assumes too much of the readers knowledge of the area.
However, it is easy to read and follow. But it's no Judith Chalmers or Alan Wicker.
