“not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

easilly accessed unique mountain scenery - much scope for exploring walking trails with map - worth the entry fee - family friendly - the Dam itself is well worth the 15 minute walk with spectacular mountain vista - walk enthusiasts can bring a picnic haversack and walk on tarmac another 3 miles to Ben Crom higher dam (shuttle minibus for return trip in Summer- otherwise walk back) , with over 200 steps to top of the high dam - ordinary mortals should not miss the 1.5 mile designated Nature Trail entered from the car park, suitabe for child buggies and riverside picnics - higher gravel paths lead from this up the mountainside across marked trail to a viewing point above the main Dam, with great mountain views, the leading down and across the Dam itself (2 miles) - always check weather forecasts and dress accordingly!

Spent a morning walking round and enjoying the views. Rained, but it was still a lovely place to visit.
