Coed Ganllwyd National Nature Reserve is situated behind the village of Ganllwyd on the A470, about 9 kilometres north of Dolgellauin Wales, United Kingdom.[1]

A stunning island of broadleaved deciduous trees amidst a sea of conifer plantations, it includes a steep wooded gorge and high tumbling waterfalls. Along this ravine the famous ‘Rhaeadr Ddu’ or ‘Black Waterfall’ can be seen.

In addition to being considered the richest site in Western Europe for mosses and liverworts, it is also an important home for certain rare species of bats, like the lesser horseshoe bat.
