Dinas Emrys is a wooded hillock near the scenic hamlet of Beddgeleret in the middle of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. This site high above the river Glasfryn was an Iron Age Fort before the Celtic King Vortigen choose this spot for his castle in the sixth century after the Roman exit. Vortigen, employed a young boy by the name of Myrddin Emrys (Merlin) to help him rid of the Saxon white dragon that was attacking the Welsh Dragon of Wales. During our Wildwales Walkabout starting on October 3, 2018 we will be staying next to Dinas Emrys for three nights.
