Dolgellau is set in the southern part of The Snowdonia National Park, at the foot of the Cader Idris (Cadair Idris) mountain range with three main routes to the summit. The town is a great base for touring Snowdonia with many popular walks only two or three miles from the town centre.
Dolgellau is steeped in history and was formerly the county town of Merionethshire (now Gwynedd). The remains of historic Cymer Abbey (founded in 1198) can also be seen in the nearby village of Llanelltyd. This is again within walking distance of the town (being around a mile and a half away). The route also passes through the Dolgellau (nine-hole) Golf Course, which also serves tea.
Remnants of the ‘gold rush’ of the nineteenth century can still be seen and some of the gold mines can still be found, as well as a Copper Mine at Glasdir (a pleasant three mile walk/cycle ride on a nice quiet road). The town and local area was also the main focal point for the development of the Quakers who were established here after a visit by George Fox in 1657.
The area upon which Dolgellau stands was, in the pre-Roman Celtic period, part of the tribal lands of the Ordovices, who were conquered by the Romans in AD 77–78. Although a few Roman coins from the reigns of Emperors Hadrian and Trajan have been found near Dolgellau, the area is marshy and there is no evidence that it was settled during the Roman period. There are, however, three hill forts in the vicinity of Dolgellau, of uncertain origin.
