Barmouth Bridge, 150 years old in 2017. Currently free for pedestrians and cyclists to cross between Barmouth and Fairbourne. Once on the Fairbourne side, there is a path into Fairbourne itself, or you can travel up the famous Mawddach Trail along the disused railway line towards Dolgellau via the George the III pub.

A short walk from our cottage this amazing structure gave us wonderful views out to sea and up the river. Noisy when a train goes past and the only palce I've seen a "Beware of the Troll" sign. Excellent.

The views from the bridge are lovely. We took a lady in a wheelchair and access was easy apart from the first 5 yards which is a bit steep. It's just over 1 km each way. There are lots of nice cafes/restaurants for refreshment after...More
