Cadair-Idris-(c)-Alan-Hamilton.jpg
This towering mountain area contains some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in Wales and is home to a range of upland plant communities.

Cliffs and rocky outcrops support lichens, bryophytes and vascular plants, and there are mountain lakes, areas of grass with an endemic eyebright species, heathland, mire and moss and liverwort and lichen-rich Sessile Oak woodland.
