Situated in a magnificent valley beside Llynnau (Lake) Mymbyr and the River Gwryd surrounded by high mountains, Plas y Brenin enjoys one of the most spectacular settings in the Snowdonia National Park. The view across the lake takes in the whole of the Snowdon Horseshoe with Moel Siabod towering above the woodland on the slopes behind the Centre.

Snowdonia offers an incredible range of opportunities for landscape photography in all conditions. Great locations for photographing lakes, woodland, mountains, waterfalls and rivers are in abundance and Plas y Brenin is within a few minutes walking distance of some fabulous shots. Plas Y Brenin is the National Mountain Centre for England and Wales.
