Cwm Idwal and Llyn Idwal Family Walk Twll Du - Devil's Kitchen

Twll Du – Devil’s Kitchen

Twll Du, or the Devil’s Kitchen is an impressive cleft in the crags high above Cwm Idwal. While the cleft itself should be avoided, a good path leads directly towards it before veering around it and to Llyn y Cwn. Twll Du translates to the Black Hole from welsh, and no explanation is needed why! …
