Cregennan Lakes
No visit to Glyn-yr-Aur is complete without a visit to the Cregennan Lakes. Go there by car, mountain bike or if your as mad as myself put on a pair of running shorts.

Arriving in the central square in Dolgellau take the narrow turn Arran Road just before the bus stop. After 400metres turn left into Cader Road and follow this up into the mountains past the Gwernan Lake Hotel, past Ty Nant car park (for Cadair Idris) and after a couple of miles turn right through a gate and as you go over the brow of the hill the lakes come into view.

Still not sure you want to go..then check out the Rotating View on the official Cregennan web site.

To return just carry on past the lakes over a little rise and admire the tremendous views of the Mawddach Estuary before winding down a gated steep road to the main Fairbourne-Dolgellau road
