View over Dwygyfylchi at the foot of the Snowdonian Mountains

Strolling along the foothills of Snowdonia, I came across this charming Hamlet, where the mountains and the sea form the most spectacular vision of a rural idyll. The area is very popular with walkers, hikers and tourists alike, taking advantage of the various camp sites and caravan parks in the surrounding countryside. Although Dwygyfylchi is situated right next to the A55, you wouldn't know that this fast track road runs right past the village. From here, a country road leads right to the top of the Snowdonian Mountains, where the ancient monument, 'The Druid Circle' attracts many visitors to these parts. Once you get to the top, the road leads into a path on the summit, restricted to non-vehicular traffic. I was mesmerized by the calm and quiet I experienced on the top of the mountain...the best place to come and escape the hustle and bustle of the streets below, in fact, the most peaceful place I have ever visited.
