There are not many places of interest. Perhaps the most important are the places which tradition assigns to the exploits of Gwylliaid Cochion Maw- ddwy (The Red Banditti of Mawddwy), a gang of thieves which infested this neighbourhood in the six- teenth century. Baron Lewys Owen, of Cwrt, Plas- yndre, Dolgelley, was killed by them about four miles from here on the Cann Office road, at a place called to this day Llidiart y Barwn" (The Baron's Gate). There is also a mound on a farm called Collfryn, about three miles from Dinas, which is said to be the place of execution of about eighty of these thieves. The mountain called Arran Mawddwy is about six miles from here. There are no professional guides. ACCOMMODATION.
