Nant Cynnyd Viewpoint
Best at / for: summer sunrise, mid-winter snow and ice.

Notes: sweeping vista from Moel Berfedd, across the Snowdon horseshoe down to Llyn Gwynant.
The Nany Cynnyd viewpoint is a popular pull-in on the road from Capel Curig to Beddgelert. But landscape photographers shouldn’t be put off by such a seemingly unadventurous location. It’s been established as a viewpoint for a reason. And in the right conditions you can get some great images from there.
It offers a sweeping vista all the way down the valley from Moel Berfedd to Llyn Gwynant.
But it’s main attraction is being elevated enough and set back far enough to offer fabulous panoramas of the entire Snowdon horseshoe.
That’s about it really. Easy to reach and park, get your camera out and have fun without any tedious hiking.
Well worth a stop-off in my opinion!
