Comments: If you've got kids who like scrambling over rocks then of all the walks on Deeside this is without doubt the one for you. A good one for anyone who fancies themselves as a modern-day Indiana Jones too.

In fact, if I was showing someone around Deeside and I had one walk to take them on - this is the one I would choose. 

On the down-side: the scrambling over rocks means comfortable shoes are a must. Those unsteady on their feet are not going to get the most out of it and please ensure you closely supervise over-enthusiastic children. This walk does involve clambering over rocks that can be slippery so please take extra-special care.

  50. The God of War series isn't recognized for its intricate plot. Most of the time, Kratos, the game's protagonist, just exists to exact vengeance on the Gods of Olympus–and he does so in a stunning manner. This episode brings his son, Atreus, into the mix, forcing Kratos to confront his atrocities. Kratos want to raise his son to be a better person than himself. That is the main topic of this God of War, happening this time in the heart of Norse mythology. A fantastic game, rich in content, reflecting noble principles, and unquestionably one of the most beautiful ever created.
