Walk to the summit of Cadair Idris (2820 feet/855 metres). Parts of the route are very steep, but once on the shoulder of the mountain, the going is easier. There are several routes, but the closest to Dolgellau takes the so-called Pony Path, and takes about two and a half to three hours to reach the summit.
Home cooked local food, pleasant staff. Situated in former courthouse and jail.
Small, friendly fish and chip shop with two very small tables if you want to eat in.
Popular Bengali/Indian restaurant with all the standard dishes. Licensed.
