Llyn Brianne

Enjoy a walk or cycle along this beautiful reservoir in central Wales. The reservoir sits at the head of the River Towy with a dam 299 feet high and 951 feet long. There's a lovely country lane running along the eastern side of the water. It climbs high above the reservoir with wonderful views over the water to the surrounding countryside and hills. The lane is ideal for a quiet cycle ride in beautiful surroundings.
The route starts from the car park at the southern end of the water and follows the track through the Tywi Forest before finishing at the bridge at the northern end of the reservoir. Look out for red squirrels as you pass through the forest. You can view the scenery and follow the route using the google street view link below.
To extend your walking in the area you could head south to the Gwenffrwd-dinas RSPB Nature Reserve which is just to the south of the reservoir. Here you can enjoy great views of the River Towy and look out for red kites and a variety of butterflies.
