Incredible gorges lost in Scotland.

It was hard to find it be we made it! Coordinates: 56°02'01.6"N 4°24'51.4"W

Between Croftamie and Craighat, there is an intersection (from Croftamie to Craighat it will be on you left). Park your car here and follow the main road by foot. You will see a small path along the road. Follow it until you arrive to a small bridge (you will hear a waterfall or some water running). Just after the bridge, climb it on the left side of the road and start to explore! It will take you about 15minutes to reach the first steps down to the gorges (with a rope to help you go down). After that just explore in the water or outside the water. 

You can reach another point by walking a bit more.

We didn't went on the right side of the bridge. Maybe there is a lot more to see...!

Summit Mount Snowdon via the Watkin Path

United Kingdom / Watkin Trailhead

Although Mt Snowdon is only a modest 3,560ft the trailhead starts barely above sea level, so you’ll be doing a lot of climbing, almost the whole mountain.
