Glaslyn Nature Reserve Car Park

Glaslyn Nature Reserve Car Park

Dylife, Llanbrynmair, Powys, SY20 8RE

This remote car park high in the Cambrian Mountains makes for a stunning stargazing location complete with nearby lake for starry reflections in astro-photos! The gravel access road looks like it could be a little bumpy! (see Google Streetview to check)


Glaslyn Nature Reserve Car Park is a Go Stargazing Site. The location has been identified by the Go Stargazing team as a good location for stargazing based on local light pollution levels, distance from nearby towns and cities and offers a safe place to park.
