Looking across the Dam from NE
Looking across the Dam from NE
You might just be able to make out the hail on this otherwise bright (but brisk) day. The lake looks full so not much call for power. The peak in the distance is Moelwyn Bach.
Llyn Stwlan
The top reservoir of Ffestiniog Pumped Storage Scheme, which is held in place by Stwlan Dam, a highly visible local landmark (when it's not foggy).
Stwlan Dam
Large concrete Dam constructed in the 1960s to hold back Llyn Stwlan which is the top reservoir for Ffestiniog Power Station.
Moelwyn Bach :: SH6643
710m above sea level at the peak. It's the second highest peak in the Moelwyn Range. Bach is Welsh for Small.
