Beautiful drive around the Elan Valley and Lynn Brianne Reservoir. Spectacular views accords the reservoir with car parks and picnic sites at view points along the way. In particular is Ffannog Car Park where Ffannog Farmhouse can be seen at very low waters. A controversial yet highly needed reservoir made in the 1960/1970 era.
