This map shows Llyn Brenig or Lake Brenig in English. Location of Llyn Brenig in  WalesBrenig is located high on the Denbigh moors in North Wales between the towns of Cerrigydrudion to the south, Ruthin to the East and the town of Denbigh to the North. The Alwen reservoir and a group of smaller lakes including Llyn Alwen, Llyn Aled and Llyn Bran are close by. The hills of Moel Llyn (448m), Bryn Trillyn (496m), Gorsedd Bran (518m) and Craig Bron Branog (501m) stand sentinel nearby on the bleak Denbigh moors. Surprisingly, considering it's isolated position, the area has had periods of occupation over several thousand years, with archaeological evidence of settlements, cairns and ancient burial chambers dotted about the moorland landscape of Llyn Brenig.

Today the signs of human habitation are the Visitor Centre and Cafe, the Car Park and Children's Play Area. But they are not over obtrusive in the landscape of Brenig.

The lake itself, or reservoir, is over 900 acres and is the largest in Wales in terms of area covered. It has a perimeter of some 14 miles which makes it ideal for the Mountain Bike Trails around the Lake. And whether you enjoy mountain biking, fishing, watersports, or simply walking you will find plenty to keep you and the family occupied at Llyn Brenig. There are restrictions on the lake however which, although permitting sailing, windsurfing, rafting and canoeing, do prevent the use of those noisy jet-skis and power boats.
