Walking notes by Rob Steele
Nice day through some rugged countryside, the route starts off on a minor road, then onto paths crossing a ridge before plunging into a deep valley with a reservoir, crossing the dam and a short road section before picking up an ancient "Way" up and into Grandas de Salime, a small town, then more minor roads and good paths to the hamlet of Castro. Not so many places for breaks and lunch stop, All facilities at Grandas de Salime but not a lot else en-route
