A traverse of the rocky peaks of Aran Benllyn and Aran Fawddwy make for a rewarding day walk in southern Snowdonia. They are popular, so don't quite qualify for 'hidden corner' status, but you are likely to have a quieter day than further north. Starting from Llanuwchllyn, it's a steady ascent to Aran Benllyn, then a steep climb up Aran Fawddwy before descending to Rhydymain. Both stops are on bus routes from Barmouth and Dolgellau, and these are good bases for further mid-Wales walks.
