Dinorwig Lookout - Easy walk within 10 minutes drive

Dinorwig Slate Lookout – you can make this into a much longer walk through the quarry, but if you just want a stroll, there is a great lookout point here and it is only 10 minutes drive from our farm. With fantastic views over to Anglesey, turn round and you have views over Llanberis and then up to Snowdon . And if it is a nice evening , you might be lucky enough to get a view like this one. 

The slate quarry is an integral part of the history of this area, with an application to become a UNESCO heritage site currently underway.

We found some useful websites and videos for those of you who would like to find out more.
