Bontddu Visitor Information
Bontddu was at the heart of a mini-gold rush in the late 1800s. In the woods behind the village lie the remains of the Clogau Gold Mine, one of the largest of a string of Goldmines working a gold seam running along the north shore of the estuary and up towards Coed y Brenin.
The RSPB reserve at Garth Gell is a short walk to the east, and for those seeking more rugged terrain, the village sits at the southern end of the Rhinogs, a range of hills stretching north towards Porthmadog. The Mawddach Way is easily accessible, passing through the Clogau workings a little higher up the valley.
For something a little different, why not explore some of the remains of 20th century military activity in the area. From hill-top memorials to beach defences, there are over 50 different sites in and around the Mawddach Estuary to be explored on foot, by bike or by car. See here for further details.
