Located on the summit of a pass at the western extremity of the Cambrian Mountains, the Visitor Centre enjoys stunning views out over the coastal lowlands of Cardigan Bay on one side, and the wild uplands of central Wales on the other. The area is a haven for birdlife such as the Red Kite, Buzzard, Black Grouse, Snipe, Woodcock, Goshawk and Merlin, and indeed one of the centres main attractions is an opportunity to see the daily 3pm feeding of Red Kites on the shores of the local lakes.
