Dinas Oleu Walk, Barmouth


The walk takes you from Barmouth town centre through the steep narrow winding streets of the Old Town and up to the top of the gorse-covered hill, known as Dinas Oleu (Citadel of Light). As you make your way upwards, dramatic views over the Mawddach Estuary and Cardigan Bay - stretching towards the Llyn Peninsula - unfold. The walk is rich in history and you will explore the first area of land donated to the National Trust in 1895 by Mrs Fanny Talbot.
