Dolbadarn Castle, Llanberis

fen_snapz's picture

A lovely location at the end of the very beautiful Llanberis pass, this location is reached by 3 footpaths each a short distance from the road, the footpath leading from Llyn Padarn is the steepest, with some steps up, the footpath from Pentre Castell road is the easiest, with more comfortable inclines. The photographic angles are slightly limited, but a wide angle lens should get the best of it. It also captures the sun at sunset from Llyn Padarn, so some nice views with it in the distance are possible from the shore of Llyn Padarn. It can get very busy, as it is within very easy walking distance from all the major tourist attractions of Llanberis: Snowdon itself, electric mountain, the train up to Snowdon, Padarn park, the slate workings, steam trains, pleasure cruises on the river and much more. Llanberis itself is quite easily a full day out.

A great hotel is the Royal Legacy Victoria, which offers some cheaper accommodation and is superbly located to visit this and the Snowdonia region. There are plenty of local cafes and toilets within easy walking distance.
