Wales: Borth-Y-Gest

Wales: Borth-Y-Gest
Borth-Y-Gest wit hits Victorian houses is built in a shallow bowl around a sheltered bay on the edge of the River Glaslyn with a horseshoe shaped promenade. The village is dominated by the harbour, where a number of small boats are moored.

The village was a busy shipbuilding centre before Porthmadog was established. The so called ‘pilot houses’ were built at the mouth of the harbour, so pilots could keep a watch for ships needing them. In the past Bort-Y-Gest was starting point for the crossing over the dangerous Glaslyn estuary.
