On your way back to the lake, consider taking a small detour. Just after the signpost for Beddgelert on your return, clamber up the ridge to your left and you will be rewarded with fabulous views of the valley below and the village of Beddgelert. You will also discover the best views of Llyn Dinas from this area.
You can now enjoy an undemanding walk back down the mountain and the lake awaits you, reflecting the mountains on a sunny day. Dogs will enjoy paddling or swimming after a vigorous walk and there are two small beaches on the shore which afford easy access to the water. If time is on your side, take a stroll around the lake before you leave. It is an easy but pleasant walk courtesy of a new pathway which largely clings to the shoreline.
Llyn Dinas is one of my favourite places to spend a morning, afternoon or evening. From dawn until dusk, it is a beautiful location with something for everyone.
