We shall be driving through Snowdonia National Park in early May next year. The route I am considering is
Talybont-on-Usk - Rhayader - Devils Bridge (short walk) - Dolgellau (stop for lunch) - Pass of Aberglaslyn - Beddgelert (stop for icecream) - Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch - Conwy.
I have 2 questions.
Which route is better? - Pass of Aberglaslyn or should we head to Conwy through Gwydyr State Forest. I like the novelty value of visiting the town with the longest name but not if the scenery is not as good.
My other question is - are there clearly marked "lookouts" with car parks as we drive through the National Park or do people just stop along the roadside when they see a view that takes their breath away. If there are sign-posted stops - which are the "do not miss"?
As a background, the day before hand, we will have driven from Cornwall to Talybont-on-Usk where we have a B&B booked and the day after we intend to explore Conwy in the morning and Bodnant Garden in the afternoon and will be leaving Wales the day after.
