Llyn Tegid


The largest lake in Wales and here you can have a chance to enjoy the views all around. Interestingly, Llyn Tegid translates as ‘The Lake of Serenity’, which is a fitting title considering its tranquil ambience and breathtaking surroundings. Steeped in legend, the lake is said to be home to a monster known affectionately as ‘Teggie’. It is also claimed that on moonlit nights the towers and buildings of a sunken village are visible through the water.
