Llanrug, Gwynedd
Llanrug is a village on the banks of the Afon Seiont in Gwynedd, north-west Wales. The village lies midway between two of Wales's most popular tourist destinations, with Caernarfon and its magnificent castle - a World Heritage Site - about 4 miles to the west, and Llanberis - at the foot of Mount Snowdon - a similar distance to the southeast.
The village straddles the A4086 road from Llanberis Pass to Caernarfon and offers easy access from the Menai Strait in the northwest to Snowdonia in the southeast.
The hills and mountains of Snowdonia border Llanrug with Cefn du (441m) to the south, Elidir Fawr (923m) to the west and the Snowdon Massif (1085m) to the south-west.
Walkers are spoilt for choice with trails criss-crossing the landscape – walk one of the several trails to the top of Mount Snowdon, or take the easier, but no less attractive route, around Llyn Padarn Lake. The autumnal colours on the hillside trail to Fachwen are magnificent and the view from Pont Penllyn Bridge must be one of the finest in Snowdonia.
Or why not let the train take the strain – Llanberis is one of a few towns worldwide that lets you catch a train to the top of a mountain!
Afon  Rhythallt River
The River Seiont is a popular angling river and there is a fish hatchery in the Crawiau area of the village run by the Seiont, Gwyrfai and Llyfni fishing association - sgll.co.uk. Visitors are welcome to fish the local rivers and lakes and the sgll.co.uk website has all price and permit details.
There are a few shops in Llanrug itself, including a butcher, two pubs (the Penbont Inn and the Glyntwrog Inn), a Post Office, two grocers and a chip shop (as of 2012). The village has its own attractions, such as the 11th Century church of St. Mihangel and the Memorial Hall, built in the early 1900s.
Llanrug has a Welsh-speaking community of 81% and a population of 2,500.
