Llyn Vrynwy

Llyn Vrynwy, an artificial lake in the hills between Bala and Welshpool, is a lovely spot for a day out. You can hire a boat or a bike, you can walk around the lake or up in the hills, you can bring your binoculars and watch birds and, if you have 15 minutes to spare, you can watch the newly opened and really quite splendid 3D film about the area. (And, best of all, it's free!)
