The 0.75 mile long Llyn Geirionydd is located in the northern part of Gwydyr Forest, close to Trefriw. The lake is on the only one in Snowdonia where power boats and water skiing are permitted.

The shores of the lake were home to the sixth-century bard Taliesin, the earliest Welsh-language poet whose work still survives.

  6. Just been reading up on an Eisteddfod that was held annually on the banks of Llyn Geirionydd that was set up in protest against the National Eisteddfod. It all sounds rather bonkers, and I’m trying to get to the bottom of the story, but looking at the pics they chose an amazing location!
