Porthmadog → Harlech

[View from Porthmadog Cob]

Distance: 10.6 miles
Ascent: 185 metres
Duration: 3 hours 27 minutes

Along the road
« Pwllheli | Barmouth »

Two miles south-east of Porthmadog the village of Portmeirion is well known. If you're planning on visiting the village, leave the car behind and follow the first part of today's walk: across the causeway from Porthmadog then up and over the wooded headland before dropping to the village's entrance.

I spent most of the remainder of the day walking on the road. Between Ynys and Harlech it would have been possible to find a footpath slightly nearer the coastline but worried about missing the only train for three hours I opted instead for the main road.
