Its a bit too far mileage wise. However.... if this one goes well then in the future it's a possibility... though a little remote for the access for the rest of the population!

Portmadoc better be on the itinerary! Always had a great fondness for North Wales, stayed in a delightful village near Rhyl over christmas a few years ago.
The new magazine has a good outline of the route. Tony Miller is the man with the plan.

I’m sure that Nikki will love driving those bends!
