The Welsh Highland Railway goes from Caernarfon to Porthmaddog.  The route runs along the foot of Snowdon in a dramatic valley.  You can somtimes here the whistle of a train as it puffs from Dinas to Waunfawr.  It is run by the same people as the Ffestiniog Railway and joins up at Porthmaddog. See here

The area is great for hill walking and rock climbing the highest mountain of course being Snowdon.  Those who cant climb too far there is a railway to the cafe at the top.

 

But ther is not just Snowdon, because of its popularity the other peaks are much quieter with the Glyders to the north, Mynydd Mawr (Elephant Mountain) to the south and the Rivals on the start of the Llyn Peninsula of which Yr Eifl has a neolithic settlement at the top.

Dinas Dinlle (Dinas Dincle in English) is an Iron Age fort overlooking a long blue flag Beach.

 

Very popular with families in the summer it is just 8 minutes drive from Cynlas and can be clearly seen from our land.
