The Mawddach Estuary in mid-Wales is one of my favourite places. We stayed there for a few days last October.
On the southern shore there’s a fabulous footpath, the Mawddach Trail that starts in Dolgellau and follows the long-gone railway track. You can walk all the way to the coast and cross into Barmouth via the old viaduct, and then catch the bus and travel back to Dolgellau following the northern shore line. The trail is flat and even and accessible to all.

It sounds ideal. Join me there? 😀
Now there’s a lovely thought 🙂
Great capture of the Mawddach in the first image, Tish
That sounds like a fun escape.
That sounds a delightful walk. How long does it take? I like it when you can catch a bus back.
We’ve only walked a couple of miles along a particular stretch, but from Dolgellau to Barmouth it’s just over 9 miles. So a good day out with a visit to Barmouth thrown in.
Fabulously evocative images.
Great images!!! It looks like a very nice walk
Reblogged this on Hutts Ultra Blogging World.
Looks a wonderful place. I only know the Dyfi and its ospreys.
Ah, yes, we’re watching the Dyfi on-line just now. Real life drama! It’s the next estuary up from the Mawddach. Also very beautiful.
