If you have time Corrstones stone circle nearby is worth a look as well. Hope you have a good trip :-) thelonious Posted by thelonious

Absolutely lovely.
Got me a bit excited, as I'm coming up to Aberdeenshire in a month, and Ardlair is definitely on my list.
Sold!

Thanks... I do love the landscape of northern Mid Wales.

Yes, very much so (wonderful/frustrating). Worth the effort for all that though. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

I've passed by but didn't stop.... must be wonderful/incredibly frustrating at the same time. Bit like Bru na Boinne. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Great Orme - I went to the high point but stupidly missed out the mines on the way. I need to rectify this one day. thelonious Posted by thelonious

The tight spaces aren't very tight, you can only get the tunnel entrances - this shot is taken through the grill. In terms of mine experience, I'd pick the Great Orme mine over this one as there is a lot more that's accessible to the visitor. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

I can't believe it's seven and a half years since Drew took us there! thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

A right mess is right. Drew did point out most of the stones are still there though. Love to see it standing again one day. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Sounds great. Though I'm not great with heights or tight spaces, I like to think I could hopefully put on a brave face and give it a go, it does look pretty exciting. thelonious Posted by thelonious

We walked through the forest to it from the train station. It was a weekday in school holidays. We arrived just before 12 so we had to wait an hour before we could go down due to their lunch break. There were 5 other people there who arrived over lunch, two of whom went down while we were down the mine. By the time we left there were a couple of other cars. It's quite off the beaten track so I guess it doesn't get so many people who are passing through to somewhere else. You go down a long ladder with a hard hat. Not difficult at all but if you suffer from vertigo, balance or mobility issues or claustrophobia it's not for you. Otherwise it's great - shame you can't get into the tunnels and galleries though. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

What a place! I was just having a look at the aerial view of it on google earth. Love to go one day. Is it easy enough to get down in to? Was it busy? thelonious Posted by thelonious

The heatwave? Yeah, hard to remember after the wet week we've just had, it was uncomfortably hot walking round the site - we were very glad to get into the mine. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
