General information


This is an afternoon walk getting to know Barmouth.

This heritage trail includes"Old Barmouth" which is quite unique, and is an area where houses were built on the steep hill above the harbour as early as the 15th century. Up until the middle of the 18th century the whole town was situated in this location, safely above the waves.

We can explore the winding alleys on the hillside that climb up and around the cottages giving wonderful views over the town, sea and Mawddach Estuary.

The steepness means that you often look down the chimneys of the houses below you.

We will also tour the newer parts with it's historic buildings and feel the sand between our toes on the beautiful beach.

Refreshments in one of the cafes at the end of the walk.

Terrain / Difficulty

***Please note this walk has only been marked as moderate because of the steepness behind the houses that some people might find difficult, otherwise it's an easy walk.People will have the option at the end of missing out the steep bits.
