Llanrwst, once noted for its Welsh harpmakers, lies on the east bank of the river Conway, and is situated in one of the prettiest spots of North Wales. It ought not to be overlooked.
This line diverges to the left at Llandudno Junction. The valley through which this line passes is described by Burke as
the most charming spot in North Wales. It skirts the eastern bank of the Conway, following its various windings. At a distance of two miles beyond the junction we come to the station of Llansaintfraidd, the village of which consists of a number of cottages scattered over the side of the hill, to the left of the line. From this point the line passes frequently beneath well-timbered cliffs, on the one hand, and the silent stream on –the other, until we arrive at the next station.
Tal-y-Cafn. – Here is a ferry across the river into Carnarvonshire, and in the immediate vicinity two waterfalls, the Porthlwyd and Dolgarrog, the former of which should be seen.
