Places to Visit
Dolgellau is a Town situated at the base of Cadair Idris and is a popular destination and used by many as a base for their ascent to the peak of Cadair Idris. It is also home to the Cader Race – one of the most demanding and toughest fell races in Wales.
If you don’t fancy the race, then try the much gentler walk or a cycle along the old railway line from Dolgellau to Morfa Mawddach Station (Mawddach Trail). 8 miles of gentle walking which offers glorious views over the local countryside.
Hidden in the narrow streets of Dolgellau you will find pubs, restaurants, cafes and a host of shops – all housed in the distinctive stone buildings (most of them listed) that make the Town so picturesque.
Just 1.5 miles from Dolgellau is the little village of Llanelltyd which is home to Cymer Abbey (Cadw), now in ruins it was founded in 1198 by Maredudd ap Cynan for the Cistercian order.
