MOUTH OF THE RIVER
Translated from Welsh, Abergwyngregyn literally means Mouth of the river of the white shells. This small village is a key tourist destination, attracting 50-60,000 tourists each year, with its proximity to Rhaeadr Fawr (Aber Falls) making it the perfect starting point for a gentle trek up the mountain.
Historically, Abergwyngregyn was most well known for its links with Welsh royalty, and was home to one of the prince’s favourite residences. With the whole village being auctioned in 1925, everything is now privately owned, and is home to around 200 residents.
Abergwyngregyn sits at the foot of the spectacular Aber Falls waterfall. Situated in the foothills of the Carneddau mountain range, the stunning landmark attracts over 50,000 visitors a year into the village, and is a must-see for those wanting to experience the true beauty of Wales.
The water from the Falls plunges 120ft before forming Afon Rhaeadr Fawr (Aber Falls River), which runs right alongside the distillery. You can walk up to the falls in less than an hour from one of the car parks in Abergwyngregyn, and witness the majesty of this stunning waterfall.
