Llyn y Fign

Nestled in a remote part of Meirionnydd is a little, rarely visited, gem.

This cairn stands at 772m [SH 8366 1946].

Looking just East of North looks to the southern end of Aran Fawddwy and Drysgol

This spot can't claim to be anything in numbers (not the highest lake) - it is one of the largest bodies of water adjacent to a 700m summit in England and Wales, but you shouldn't visit this spot to 'tick it off'.

There are many ways to get to Llyn y Fign and Glasgwm, they're all steep in places, and if the weather changes, can be tricky to navigate off, so be prepared.

There is a lovely 'out and back' run of just under 10km, and around 575m of ascent, or link it into a circuit that picks off some other tops. However you get here, plan a few minutes to soak in the location.
