Directions According to legends, this is the final resting place of 'Gelert', the faithful hound of Welsh Prince Llewelyn. In the 13th century Llewelyn, Prince of North Wales, had a palace at Beddgelert. He was a keen hunter, and spent a lot of his time hunting in the countryside around Beddgelert. Llewelyn had a large pack of hunting dogs but his favourite was Gelert. They were inseparable on hunting days.
Dinas Emrys is a delightful wooded hilltop just outside the village of Beddgelert. If you are in the mood for a short (just over two miles) but relatively strenuous walk in the wooded hilltops of Snowdonia then this place is hard to beat.
Fabulous walk, glorious views and a dusting of myths and legends thrown in for good measure.
