About

Many of the fantastic scenic drives in Mid Wales are set against panoramic and breathtaking backdrops and fantastic for motorists who love to explore places off the beaten track.

THE COASTAL WAY -SOUTHERN SNOWDONIA
This 35 mile scenic drive takes you north on the A487 from Machynlleth via Corris towards Dolgellau and before turning off on the B4405 to Tywyn via the picturesque Talyllyn lake at the foot of Cadair Idris mountain. From Tywyn continue south through Aberdyfi on the A493 to Machynlleth.

A few miles north of Machylleth you will find two of the larger attractions in the area: The Centre for Alternative Technology and nearby is the Corris Craft Centre where you can stop off for morning coffee, breakfast or lunch and browse around the Craft Centre. For the adventurous, consider an underground mine tour of Corris Caverns.

Tal-y-llyn Lake is a 220 acre ribbon lake situated north-east of Tywyn and north of Machynlleth at the foot of Cadair Idris in Southern Snowdonia. the River Dysynni flows from the lake through the village of Abergynolwyn to the sea north of Tywyn on the Mid Wales coast near Tonfanau.

This beautiful lake offers superb brown trout fishing from both boat or bank and as the lake has an average depth of only 8ft floating lines can be used from the outset. The fishing season runs from April to mid October and in the later part of the season sea trout and salmon run up the river to Tal-y-Llyn, and the lake is famed for its particularly large sea trout.

In the seaside resort of Tywyn, you can swap your car, motorhome, motorbike or bicycle for a different form of transport – Talyllyn Railway, the world’s first preserved railway.

Sandwiched between the Dyfi Estuary and Snowdonia’s mountains and just a few miles south of Tywyn is Aberdovey, an inspiring collaboration between its designers and Mother Nature.
