The spillway at Pontsticill Reservoir is well worth a visit but make sure you go when the water is actually draining. For this reason it's probably best to visit outside of the summer months and best to keep an eye on the weather forecast prior to going.

The Elan Valley is, in my opinion, one of the most scenic and peaceful (if you can avoid the height of the tourist season) places in Wales.

The valley containing the reservoir holds a number of fantastic photo opportunities in all kinds of conditions. Sunrises are best due to the facing hilltops catching the early light.

Although this is a man-made reservoir, apart from the dam at the north-eastern end, this location has much more the appearance of a natural lake.
