Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

The furthest east of the hills of the Brecon Beacons is Mt Skirrid 486 metres or in local tongue known as Ysgyryd Fawr. It's a wonderful summit and day out for the family or group looking to 'take it easy'. It has all the elements of a high mountain adventure with fantastic views, a ridge, a lofty summit. It is however, always close to the road and retreat - if needed.
This is fantastic introduction peak and one that can be incorporated into something else during the day - be it a long lunch or corporate event or why not take it easy and have a picnic.
