Llyn Dinas is a lake of some 60 acres, about 200 feet above sea level. It is north-east of Beddgelert.
There is limited parking nearby in pull-ins off the main road, care is needed. There is also paid parking at Bethania and Beddgelert. Sherpa buses run past the lake. For the more adventurous, the Welsh Highland Railway runs a limited service to Beddgelert, followed by a pleasant walk to Llyn Dinas.
There are no facilities at the lake, the nearest toilets and refreshments are in Beddgelert.
This is a beautiful location, full of photographic opportunities in all directions.
A well-maintained footpath runs down one side of Llyn Dinas, giving easy walking access to a wealth of possibilities.
