    Conwy - Coast and Castles

    Conwy

    Favorite thing: love visiting Conwy - beautiful North Wales seaside town. Home to the smallest house in Great Britain. There are many castles in Wales and the one at Conwy is especially worth a visit. The towers can be climbed for some great views of the town and coastline - as seen in this pic.

    Up Snowdon - the Watkin Path...

    by Bagillbaer Written Feb 25, 2003
    Leave your car behind...

    Favorite thing: The Watkin Path starts out fairly unspectacular (apart from the surrounding mountains, of course) at Nant Gwynant, about an hours walk north-east from Beddgelert - a car park, the Snowdon Sherpa bus stop "Pont Bethania" (but busses don`t come that often...), a simple concrete road across the street leading towards the mountains and some farms.
    But don't underestimate it! The Watkin Path is said to be the hardest way up to Snowdon's peak. Despite that fact, the first few kilometres of the path are fairly family friendly - and families know that.
    There's loads of them on sunny holidays, heading for the mountain stream that's so nice to sit by, dabble your feet in or even swim in! Yes, it is cold. But it is also crystal clear and an experience very worthwhile!

    Fondest memory: I found the perfect stone seat with the perfect little puddle of perfectly clear water in front to put my sore feet in.

    Ruins of Olden Days

    Old Miners' Buildings

    Favorite thing: By the time you've reached this ruin, you should probably consider turning around, if you're not into serious mountain climbing or have kids with you.
    And just a little warning - children (young and old) might be tempted to enter those ruins, but there`s no guarantee that they don't just tumble down on their visitors. You have been warned.

    Reaching Higher Levels...

    The View Back

    Fondest memory: As you can see, the path is very neatly cared for - not simply a mass of mud and pebbles. Don't try walking it on high heels though, it's not *that* neat ;o)
