Llyn Llydaw
Legend states that this 190ft deep body of water is the place where King Arthur disappeared, reputedly carried away by the fair maids of the mountains.

On the opposite bank of Llyn Llydaw the remains of a sorting and crushing mill can be seen, and this was constructed by the Britannia company in 1898 which operated the copper mines in this part of Eryri.

The tall peak in the background is the 3560ft high Yr Wyddfa, the highest mountain in Wales.
