Details

The village of Dinas Mawddwy, with a population of around 600, is located just off the A470 Machynlleth to Dolgellau road. Turn off the main road for the village and from here there is a narrow road that runs through Llanymawddwy and climbs very steeply up through the mountains to Bwlch y Groes, the highest road pass in Wales and onto Llanuwchllyn at the southern end of Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake); there is also a turn off for Lake Vyrnwy.

Meirion Mill is just outside of the village; it has a large gift shop and is at the site of the terminus of the Mawddwy Railway which carried slate from Minllyn and Aberangell to the main line at Cemmaes Road.
