I went out with the Walking Group this afternoon. We met at Tal-y-llyn Lake and then took a path along the far side, heading towards the Minfford Path that goes up Cader Idris. We stopped at Tŷ Te Cadair Tea Room for tea and I had a slice of delicious Bara Brith, naughty, but we did walk 4.8 miles this afternoon so I did not feel too guilty.
Tal-y-llyn Lake, also known as Talyllyn Lake, Llyn Mwyngil or Llyn Myngul is a large glacial ribbon lake formed by a post-glacial massive landslip damming up the lake within the glaciated valley.
Ystradgwyn Chapel, shown in the last photo used to be the centre of activity and social life in the beautiful secluded valley of Tal-y-llyn. It is now run as Tal-y-llyn Heritage Centre.
The final photo shows the Cader Idris Tea Room and Visitor Centre originally a cottage at the foot of Cader Idris in Meirionnydd that has been transformed.
I hope my photos have enabled you to enjoy a virtual walk with me today.
