Dams and Turbines, a Bothy by the Black Lake and …. the voices of DULYN! – 2014

Thursday 15th May

DAMS, TURBINES, a Bothy by the Black Lake and … The Voices of DULYN!

This mountain walk on part of the “high Carneddau” will take us past the sight of a dam that was breached, turbines that feed the national electricity grid, and a rugged marsh that leads to the “black lake” Llyn Dulyn.

Magically we find a cute highland bothy where we will stop for lunch (please bring food and drink), and then clamber near the lake edge and up a steep miner’s path. Here we find yet another mysterious lake Melynllyn and so gaze across its majestic waters below Carnedd Llewellyn and Foel Grach. We then meet the broad path that leads us to our starting point with tantalising views of Pen Llithrig y Wrach – a truly magical Snowdonia Classic Adventure.

Mountain walking clothes and boots essential.
