Proper last minute decisions to drive to Skye at 8pm on a Saturday night (post 12.5 hour shift) are always the best!
Insane day in the Cuillins yesterday, some epic route finding and great climbing fun. Craig on the summit of Sgurr Dubh Mor checking out the rest of the middle section of the ridge👌🏼⛰
Bala Lake also known as Llyn Tegid to Welsh speakers is a lake in Wales. The name Tegid may be related to Welsh teg, meaning "fair". It was the largest natural body of water in Wales before its level was raised by Thomas Telford to help support the flow of the Ellesmere Canal. It is 3.7 miles long by 0.5 miles wide. The River Dee runs through it and the waters of the lake are famously deep and clear. The town of Bala sits at its north-eastern end and the narrow gauge Bala Lake Railway runs for 3 miles along the lake's south-eastern shore, and continues south-westward to the village of Llanuwchllyn, whose name means church (llan) above (uwch) the lake (llyn)
In the legend of the History of Taliesin, the character Tegid Foel (Bald Tegid) was the husband of the goddess or witch Ceridwen. The place where his court stood is now beneath the waters of the lake. According to folk tradition, the court was drowned one night. It is said that the light of the court and the little town around it can be seen on a moonlit night.
