Snowdonia Giving... Giving Back To Snowdonia

5 Things To Do in and Around Dolgellau

A small and beautiful town, Dolgellau’s story is said to date back to the 11th or early 12th century when it was believed a settlement was created by Cadwgan ap Bleddyn for a town to be created to serve as a ‘serf village’. Later in mid 12th century, Dolgellau was more recognised for its importance when the area was the location of a council of chiefs led by Glyndwr. In the 18th century, the town was recognised for its wool industry, where its output was calculated to be worth 50,000-100,000 annually. More recently, in the 19th century the area experienced decline with the development of wool looms but later, experienced a gold rush with gold being commissioned for the royal family.

With the towns stunning surroundings and being set in the southern part of Snowdonia National Park, it provides a brilliant base location for tourists looking to…

But I’ve had a bit of a rethink. As with many headlines, the reality is not as shocking as you first suspect. The section of the Miners Track being renovated is limited to the first gradual stretch from Pen y Pass, a popular starting point up to Llyn Glaslyn. Traditional building methods have been used…
