Llyn-y-Dywarchen is a privately owned lake which lies alongside the B4418. On the day I visited there was a cold wind blowing with sunlight breaking through the clouds now and again.
My plan was to walk around the lake, mainly to get closer to this tree and some old abandoned buildings which were on the opposite side of the lake from the roadside car park.
You know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men, or as Robbie Burns put it;
The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men, gang aft agley,
I couldn’t get any further round than this. The whole area was flooded with runoff water from the rock strewn hill to my left, forcing me to abandon my plans to go further.
Still it gives me an excuse to go back once the area is drier. Maybe early spring…
