Llanddwyn Island

An easy walk in south west Anglesey, good forest tracks with stunning sea and Snowdonia views near the end, in the Newborough Warren National Nature Reserve. At just over 6 miles the walk is easy as fairly flat. Starting at the car park you follow the forest tracks going around the forest in a horseshoe, near the end you hit the beach and head out onto a peninsula called Llanddwyn Island (Ynys Llanddwyn). Great Snowdonia vistas and a historic site – The church of St. Dwynwen (the Welsh patron saint of lovers), after this you head back to the forest for the last section of the walk. This is a shorter version of the walk posted as Newborough Forest in the menu under the Gwynedd walks.

Trawsfynydd Reservoir

An easy walk around Llyn Trawsfynydd reservoir near the village of Trawsfynydd, just over 8 miles in total. The walk is on tracks and paths with a section of lanes and a little bit a pavement on the way back. A lovely walk with stunning views and the interesting old nuclear power station that looked like a Soviet building of the 70s.
