Misty, very quiet and remote with an eerie feel.
It is exactly 4.3 miles walk from Ashcoast House to Llyn Cwm Silyn, but on a misty, quiet day this remote footpath feels like it is a world away. Last time we did this walk it was the day before storm Ophelia was scheduled to hit North Wales. Perhaps it wasn't surprising that we didn't see many people on the way there or back. It was eerily quiet high up on the open plains. The calm before the storm.
Inspired by the Kate Humble's 'Off the Beaten Track' program on the BBC, where she goes skinny dipping in Llyn Cwm Silyn, we decided to revisit this Llyn on the high plains above Talysarn in the shadow of the Nantlle Ridge.
