Happy Herding Nutters is slow and hard work. Get them all ready then one Nutter will insist on having another cup of tea. Eventually, by midday the convoy is on its way to Snowdon.

We stop of on the way to Snowdon by Llyn Gwynant. There are excellent views - sunny and clear.

We get to the railway station at Llanberis where you can get a train up to the peak. But the trains are booked up! You need to pre-book train tickets.

Tickets may be purchased in advance by phone using a Credit/Debit card, telephone 0870 458 0033.
We do not accept telephone bookings on the day of travel.

Next time we’ll know! We weren’t all kitted for walking, so Snowdon will wait for another day.

We have lunch at the Electric Mountain Visitors’ Centre, a few yards up the road from the railway station.

Train We take a Ffestiniog train from Tan-y-bwth to Porthmadog. The track is within the Snowdonia National Park with some very rugged and beautiful mountain scenery.

We have a mammoth Tesco’s shopping session in Porthmadog. (15 year old single malt is purchased. Jennifer demands the best.)

The Nutters head back down the coast,  Matthew and I divert for pint and wander around Barmouth.

Si and I watch a DVD, Shaun of the Dead.
