  • To the point. What trip advisor isn't telling you is the fact it is a dangerous quarry ON private land not for public viewing. Beautiful area, Been there with families listening to people swearing and...  more »
  • This shouldn’t be on tripadvisor, it is not a safe place to visit, with a number of deaths over the last 12 months. People should only visit with an appropriately trained guide or instructor.  more »

  • What a beautiful place. Great place and the science behind it is absolutely epic with much history. It is secluded with a lake of Copper Sulphate. I would highly recommend this place
  • Been coming up to the Lake for years, never had the chance to swim in it. Great hike for a wet day, as it doesn't take long to get to. We'll worth the visit, especially on a hot day
  • Nice half day out, beautiful views and the lake is a hidden gem. you would be charged in the lakes or Cornwall.
  • A hidden gem of a place, quite difficult to find though..But after walking the welsh coast path from fairbourne me and my partner stumbled accross the beautiful blue lake on our way back down the mountain path.. its very near the slate piled mountains... absoulutely fantastic views from the surrounding areas and the blue lake itself was so good to finally see when we found it... its hidden away in what i presume was an old blast site from the historic slate mining days of old.. after reaching a level stretch of mountain with man made part standing slate buildings we explored around and thankfully found blue lake.. after more exploring we found tunnels that took us to the blue lake itself... definite hidden beauty.... would love to see thr place in summer too so will be back...
  • Very nice for a hot mid August day
