Mawddach Estuary, Arthog, Gwynedd, Wales,
At the west end of the Mawddach Valley, on the edge of
the wide sandy estuary and close to the village of Fairbourne is the
village of Arthog and the Arthog Bog. Not a very inspiring name but what
a beautiful place to visit!
The Arthog Bog is classed as a
Site of Special Scientific Interest and is an RSPB reserve. There are
information boards, toilets and picnic tables 200m east of Morfa
Mawddach railway station. Parking is available but why not leave the car
in the town and make the trip on foot or bicycle using the Mawddach
Trail. The trail with the adjacent reed beds and wetlands offer many
opportunities to bird watchers as well as safe cycling for children and
