    ViewRanger

    Posted on October 11, 2018 by in Barmouth, Things to do, Walks

    ViewRanger is a mapping app. Is it the mapping app that Google is to search? I will leave that for you to decide. It’s a good one, even at the basic account level which is free. In their own words: “ViewRanger is your digital guide to the outdoors with downloadable route guides, outdoor maps, and […]

    Posted on September 29, 2018 by in Barmouth, Sea, Things to do

    SUP is an acronym for stand up paddle boarding and is now one of the most common water sports undertaken in the UK.

    Barmouth Heritage Trail

    Posted on March 29, 2017 by in Barmouth, Things to do

    The Barmouth Heritage Trail was launched in early 2014. The website contains a wealth of information and history about Barmouth, particularly the old town that predates the 1870s building of Penbryn Mynach (formerly Bryn Mynach). However, the trail has only recently fulfilled its potential with the upgrading of the mobile networks in the Barmouth area […]

    Ynys y Brawd

    Posted on November 9, 2013 by in Barmouth, Sea

    I have often wondered how Barmouth beach is so large and wondered at its natural beauty. Expecially the vast quantities of the beautiful sand.

    March snow

    Posted on March 26, 2013 by in Barmouth

    Barmouth escaped the snow that hit inland north Wales very hard on Friday and Saturday (22nd/23rd). No 12 foot drifts here by the sea although the easterly winds were both damaging to property and plants and tough to endure outside. The views of the snow covered mountain tops were very pleasing but mostly we just […]
