Llyn Bochlwyd

OS Grid ref:- SH 654 592

Llyn Bochlwyd, a wild and rugged mountain lake, surrounded by heather clad, boulder strewn slopes, cannot be reached by road and is only accessible by footpath. The remote lake lies near to Llyn Ogwen in the Glyderau mountain range and stands at an altitude of 555 metres (1821 feet). Llyn Bochlwyd has a surface area of 10.4 acres.

The lake is sometimes known as Lake Australia, due to the fact that its shape, when viewed from above, resembles that of Australlia.

Llyn Bochlwyd offers excellent panoramic views of the Glyderau, Y Garn and the Nant Francon Valley.
