NT Members to Help Reach the Target

Does this look familiar? Why not take a while to explore the blog to learn more...?

Have you received your National Trust Magazine yet?

If you have, make sure that you take a look at the insert that went with it. 

You will see that I’m asking for your help to enable us to reach our target of £1m to secure a very special part of Snowdonia for future generations.

The good news is that we’re nearly there.  With over £800,000 already donated into the Appeal, we now need your help to help us go the last mile.  Just fill in the form and send what you can – however small – in the envelope provided.  Every donation brings us closer to saving Llyndy Isaf.

If you are new to this blog, why not take a look at some of my past posts to learn more about this amazing place – or subscribe to the blog to receive news about how the appeal is going.

A big Welsh ‘diolch yn fawr’ (thank you) for your help.



  1. It is good to see the National Trust buying land again. Last year it only acquired 350 acres. Twenty years ago it was acquiring 8000 acres a year.

    • The 80s and 90s was a very busy time for us – here in North Wales as well as in England & Northern Ireland. Many of the places that we now care for in Eryri & Llyn (like Porthdinllaen, Porthoer, Craflwyn, Hafod y Porth & Dinas Emrys) came into our protection during this period. With many of the most important conservation, amenity and recreational sites now in our care, we tend to be more selective – and strategic – nowadays. Llyndy Isaf is a good example of this. The presence of the lake means that there’s a threat of insidious low-level development, the need for conservation management is imperative and its position in relation to our other properties mean that our protection will extend to most of the beautiful vale of Nant Gwynant.

  2. Given the importance of this site to welsh heritage, please can you confirm what the Welsh Government has contributed to protecting Llyndy Isaf and how it is supporting the National Trust in its campaign.

    • The Countryside Council for Wales, which is the Welsh Government’s advisory department, has been very supportive of our campaign. It has contributed a £25,000 grant towards the management of the conservation features of the farm, in particular the area of Special Scientific Interest around the lake.

  3. I’d like to donate but I don’t want to send it via the post. Can’t there be a link to donate with PayPal or similar?

    • Many thanks for deciding to make a donation. You can do this by going back onto the blog, then scroll down and click on the link on the right that says: SNOWDONIA APPEAL WEBSITE – DONATE FOR LLYNDY HERE! You will then be directed to our Snowdonia Appeal website, where by clicking on the Donate Now button, you can do this online.
