Snowdon and Merlin's Pool

Yesterday morning we hiked from our friendly Guest House, and old farmhouse built of stone in 1644 on a hillside at the foot of mount Snowdon across from Dinas Emrys. This hillside overlooking the hamlet of Beddgeleret and the confluence of the Colwyn and Glaslyn rivers is where ancient Welsh mythology and legends tells us where Vortigen and Merlin Ambrosias resided in the sixth century. Archaeological excavations have confirmed this site at Dinas Emrys as a fort during that period and also as an Iron Age Fort much earlier.

We walked passed Merlins Pool, forded an ancient stone bridge, through groves of oak trees next to glades of cobalt Bluebells on our way up to Dinas Emrys.
