This map shows Tal-y-Llyn (sometimes Talyllyn), a beautiful Lake in
Gwynedd West Wales situated
alongside the B4405 road between the towns of Dolgellau in the North,
Machynlleth to the South and Tywyn to the South West.
The lake gives its name to the famous narrow gauge Talyllyn Railway although the railway finishes a few miles short of the lake at nearby Abergynolwyn.
If you are holidaying in the area I would strongly recommend a visit to the lake of Tal-y-Llyn. A trip from Aberdyfi to Dolgellau or Barmouth can be much improved by taking the "scenic route" via the B4405. Or take the long way round from Tywyn to Machynlleth and stop for a picnic at Tal-y-Llyn. And if you are interested in Welsh Castles and ancient monuments you can make the journey even better by visiting Castell y Bere (one of Prince Llywelyn the Great's fortresses) and the old church of St Michael's at Llanfihangel y Pennant just a few miles to the West of the lake in the secluded Dysynni Valley. There are delightful walks in the Tallyllyn and Dysynni Valleys including the picturesque Dolgoch Falls Walk and the Abergynolwyn to Castell-y-Bere Walk. Find holiday cottages nearby in Minffordd >
