Gelert's Grave, Gwynedd


  • Located in Beddgelert, Gwynedd, North Wales, Wales
  • Attraction celebrating the local legend of Gelert, 'the faithful hound'
  • Llewelyn, Prince of North Wales, returns from hunting to find 'the faithful hound' Gelert by his son's cot. The baby is missing, the hound has a bloodied mouth. Llewelyn slays the hound but then finds his son alive next to a dead wolf that Gelert had killed. Distraught, Llewelyn buries Gelert, hence 'Beddgelert'
