Dollgellau is a market town lying on the River Mawddach.

It was originally a Roman site, and was also the location of the last Welsh Parliament held in 1404, under Owen Glendower.  

The town later became known for Gold Prospecting, and indeed today has one of the only sources of Welsh Gold at "Gwynfynydd Gold Mines".

The town is popular for activities such as walking, hiking, horse riding and white water rafting, and the wild and beautiful surrounding countryside provides a perfect setting for this.
