Our venture to do the circulat precipice walk near Dolgellau was at time of very strong, close to gale force, winds so you can imagine there was a little bit of trepidaiton as we set off. This whole walk is over reasonably gentle inclines, we just well following the previous Glyder Fach marathon.
We turned right just before Llyn Cynwch to take us alongside Foel Cynwcha on one side and a drystone wall the other. Soon you afforded with good views of Foel Offrwm.
After awhile the path curves to the left away from the drystone wall and offers up sights of Coed y Brenin (‘King’s Forest’) and Bryniau Glo in the background.
Much to my brothers amusement my nerves shortly failed after this when the path turned left take along the opposite side of Foel Cynwcha. Here the path had some very steep/sheer drops to the right and to the river below, and so with the high winds I refused to go any further and we turned back.
On the positive side didnt get blown off or get wet.
The sun briefly broke through the grey clouds on the return offering up much more pleasing pano’s of the surroundings.
Once we had gone back past the drystone wall we turned right and walked alongside Llyn Cynwch.
To the views of Mawddach river and Cader Idris from the other end of the circular walk.
