Llynheilyn Lake



Llynheilyn lake is just off the A44 at Fforest Inn and you drive right past  going towards Hundred House We stopped off quickly to let the dogs have a quick break before we reached the campsite a little further along



The lake with the surrounding hills still with snow on

I always thought the lake flooded across the road 

But it's marked on the map as a ford

and runs away as a stream with a temporary snow bridge across it nearby

The lake usually has a lot of wild fowl on it  though there were few around when we stopped off

Last look and we were off

  1. This looks like a great place to stop several times during the summer to see what it attracts. Even empty, it's a nice place to stop with the water running down.

  2. The lake looks like a flooded field in that first photo. So much water around. Let's hope we have some sunshine this month.

  3. Easier to admire than to pronounce. Always plenty of water in Wales in my experience.

  4. I guess there is even more water after the last few days of rain. Some of my rivers have flood warnings.
