A DENBIGHSHIRE walking route is included in the top 5 Instagrammed walks in Wales

The research, conducted by Shoe Zone, looked at popular walks across Wales, cross referenced with Instagram data, to see which walks give the most Instagrammable opportunities.

And the popular Llangollen Canal walk came in at fourth place, with a whopping 113,000 Instagram posts in relation to it.

The walk combines stunning countryside as well as the magnificent engineering with the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct that carries the canal over the River Dee. 

Mount Snowdown's Llanberis Path not only topped the Welsh list, but came out on top across the whole of the UK - with Instragram 1.4m posts. 

As the highest mountain Wales, standing at an elevation of 1,085m, it’s no surprise this walk tops the list with views from the summit spanning across Snowdonia, Anglesey, Pembrokeshire and even Ireland. 

Charlotte Maker, head of marketing at Shoe Zone, said: “With our daily walks one of the only things we’re getting up to at the moment, we wanted to conduct some research into some of the lovely walks that people are embarking on during lockdown.

“The rocketing sales we’ve seen around wellies and walking boots over the past year shows just how much we’re enjoying getting outside, even just for an hour.”

The study saw analysis of 100 most popular walks in the UK from The Outdoor Guide cross referenced with the top three hashtags for each walk on Instagram. 

Walks were also analysed for their key three features as well as difficulty, length, time to complete, suitability for dogs, accessibility for prams and whether they required walking boots.
