Visitors to the wild west

Céline, Greg, Beverley and Daragh
Delighted today to give a tour for some special visitors to the Monts d'Arrée, and make the acquaintance of journalists Beverley Morrison, Daragh Reddin and Greg Ward, and their escorts Lionel and Céline. Great for Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales to meet together on the Breton summit. I hope they all liked what they saw in the wild west: this little known area has such potential for original experience of a different sort of Brittany. Just wish there had been more time to talk aside from 'business'...they were all such lovely people.

Central Brittany could be developed for tourism if the will and funding was there.
Walking, water sports, fishing, etc are all possibilities.

Thank you for your comment. The Monts d'Arrée is a quite distinct area, not Central Brittany in tourist terms. (Central Brittany tourism barely touches Finistère at all and not this far west.)There is no real will for developing events, trails and festivals, as I know from working here for many years. A Boots and Beer walking festival is just what the Monts d'Arrée needs. At least my new guide to the area is proving very popular in English and French versions.
