Llyn Cyri is one of the most remote lakes of the Cader Idris foothills. You can reach it via a rarely trodden path from the old Dolgellau to Llanegryn Road (called Ffordd Ddu or The Black Road). However one of the best ways to see it is an ‘Aerial’ view from the Tyrau Mawr Ridge Walk. The above photo was taken on this walk on the descent down. From here you get a fabulous view back along the Cader Idris range with Cregennen Lakes in the distance.
