Not quite sure this is the best place for this post - and I did also put it up in the Snowdonia forum - but here goes:
Would appreciate advice re. plotting a route from Libanus in the Brecon Beacons National Park to Nant Gwynant (near Penn y Pass) in Snowdonia.
I was thinking of basically sticking to the A470 and taking roads that go through Builth Wells, Rhayader, Llangurig, Llanbrynmair, Dolgellau, continuing inland with the A470 and eventually making my way to Beddgelert.
Google maps has this route as taking just over 3 hours. How accurate would this be for August?
We have no intention of rushing this trip and fully intend on spending most of the day en route.
What would be especially scenic/historical places along this route in which to stop over for a bit of a walk?
Is this a pretty drive? Would you recommend alternative routes?
Any guidance appreciated,
