Legendary Welsh lake to be bought for the nation

National Trust has raised £1m to buy a farm encompassing a lake considered one of the most beautiful and emblematic in Wales.

There were concerns that Llyn Dinas in Snowdonia and its shoreline could be turned into a water sports centre if it were not saved for the nation.

Llyn Dinas and the farm, Llyndy Isaf, are considered special partly because they are home to a wealth of wildlife but also because the area is the setting for the mythical battle between a red and white dragon. Legend says the red dragon won, and thus it became the country's beloved national symbol.
