Upland fish haven
Bugeilyn is a stream-fed upland lake supporting good numbers of trout. It is thought that the lake may even contain its own indigenous species of fish, Black-finned Trout (Salmo nigripinnis), which has only been found in one other site, in Ireland. The now rare Water Vole also finds refuge here.
Part of the Pumlumon SSSI, the lake is surrounded by heather moorland, interspersed with areas of bog, habitats which directly link Bugeilyn to nearby Glaslyn Nature Reserve.
