Glaslyn is the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust’s biggest nature reserve, an integral part of the Cambrian Mountains. The large expanse of heather moorland, with its associated boggy areas, surround an exposed upland lake. Spectacular views can be enjoyed from the viewpoint.

Glaslyn can be breath-taking at any time of year, but don’t miss July/August, when the reserve turns purple with the flowering heather. Also look out for the lake’s speciality, quillwort, which often washes up on the lake shore after bad weather.

Why not make a day of it and follow the Glaslyn & Bugeilyn audio trail.

The reserve lies on the minor road between the B4518 near Staylittle and the A489 at Machynlleth.
