Dolgellau Webcam
Welcome to the original website devoted to the historic Welsh market town of Dolgellau, which I started 14 years ago in May 2000. It contains general information, businesses, events, walks, accommodation and modern/historic photographs of the town and surrounding area.

Dolgellau is set in the southern part of The Snowdonia National Park, at the foot of the Cader Idris (Cadair Idris) mountain range with three main routes to the summit. View the Webcam of Dolgellau and Cader Idris.

This walk was featured on Julia Bradbury's "Railway Walks" series on the BBC a couple of years ago. There is also a very nice pub (the George III) after three miles at Penmaenpool.

The area boasts abundant wildlife, including two Osprey nest sites about an hours drive away (one to the north at Glaslyn and another one to the south by the river Dyfi). There is a great deal of bird life around the Mawddach Estuary and the woods and countryside.

Dolgellau is steeped in history and was formerly the county town of Merionethshire (now Gwynedd). The remains of historic Cymer Abbey (founded in 1198) can also be seen in the nearby village of Llanelltyd. This is again within walking distance of the town (being around a mile and a half away).
