Ty-Nant and Cader Idris (Cadair Idris), Wales: There is a good car park and picnic area at Ty-Nant is a few miles south-west of Dolgellau. Tynant is an excellent base and starting point for climbing Cader Idris Mountain. The is also a bunkhouse at TY-NANT house which is just on the left of the track near the start of the 'Pony Track' walking route up Cader Idris. The YHA Youth Hostel at Kings in the Penmaenpool direction is not too far away either. There are glorious views all the way up and down Cader Idris on the Pony Track, particularly looking towards the sea as well as looking for the summit! Even though on our day out there, the top was a bit misty, never-the-less we pressed on to the summit! A splendid and satisfying walk before spending the night at Machynlleth before visiting the Centre for Alternative Technology the next day.
