Dolgellau Visitor Information
The pretty market town of Dolgellau (pronounced Dol-geth-lie) was once the administrative centre for the county of Merioneth. It retains a weekly livestock market and the narrow streets of the town have plenty of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. The main car park beside the Marian playing fields has public toilets.

Dolgellau is a midpoint on Section B of the Mawddach Way and the start or finish of the Mawddach Trail. Bike Hire is available in the town.
