Wild, Welsh wilderness
Glaslyn is Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust’s biggest nature reserve, an integral part of the Cambrian Mountains. The large expanse of heather moorland, with its associated boggy areas, surround an exposed upland lake. Spectacular views can be enjoyed from the viewpoint.
Best time to visit
Glaslyn can be breathtaking at any time of year, but don’t miss July/August, when the reserve turns purple with the flowering heather. Also look out for the lake’s speciality, quillwort, which often washes up on the lake shore after bad weather.
