Walking up the path from Cors y Gedol to Bodlyn, on the way we can taking in the ruined farmhouse, the woods, and then at the lake photographing the boathouse and hopefully lake reflections. On the return journey we will call in at Craig y Ddinas Stone fortification, Situated on a lonely, isolated outcrop of rock 350 metres (1200 feet) above sea level, the Iron Age hill fort of Craig y Ddinas boasts dramatic views of the mountains and coastline of the Irish Sea between Harlech and Barmouth. This oval-shaped fort preserves many of its original features, including substantial sections of stone ramparts which, in places, remain standing to near their original height. The elaborate entrance on the eastern side of the defences is cut through by an ancient trackway, which leads to a small plateau with the remains of roundhouses. After that, hopefully, we will catch a spectacular sunset across Cardigan Bay. Sunset approximately 7.30pm

This walk may change to an equally good wet weather walk!

If you have DSLR’s or want to be experimental with your cameras you should bring tri-pods or filters with you if you have them. Also lens cloths, large enough memory cards, fully charged batteries and the usual mountain/wet weather gear. Also don’t forget your Camera!!!!
