There are some great viewing points local to the cottage that you can walk to - no need for a car. Directly opposite is the hill Moel y Llys - a tough scramble up through the rocks and heather (there is no path) gets you lovely views down the Porthmadog estuary, and back across the major peaks of Snowdonia. Just up the road towards Maentwrog is Fron Goch (217 metres) -also good for views of the Moelwyns and down to the coast. Last night we walked into the forest opposite the cottage and climbed up to the viewpoint of Y Gysgfa (234 metres) - this gives great views across the Afon Dwyryd estuary down to Harlech (you can see the castle), and across to the northern Rhinogs.
