LAKE VYRNWY, POWYS

Country Living (UK) - - Travel -

Ad­mire the Vic­to­rian Gothic Strain­ing Tower (above) and ma­jes­tic engi­neer­ing of the dam at Lake Vyrnwy, which is now an RSPB na­ture re­serve. Tucked into the folds of pur­ple heather moor­land, the re­serve has sev­eral straight­for­ward walks – as well as hides from which to spot pere­grine fal­cons, pied fly­catch­ers and red­starts. Try the mile-long Grwn-oer trail from Llan­wd­dyn, which be­gins on a mi­nor road be­fore join­ing a for­est track to a look­out point. Wheelchair users might need as­sis­tance with the walk’s one mod­er­ately steep hill, but, once at the top, works by chain­saw sculp­tor Andy Han­cock and panoramic lake and dam views make up for the climb. rspb.org.uk
