At Kingston Kayak Club we are trying to build a useful YouTube Channel: one that shows what we do, but also has some videos for the wider community. We are building a series of Video River Guides and this is our latest, The River Tryweryn.

Sorry but this video really doesn't do what it says on the tin!

The viewpoint is too low so even as someone who knows the river a bit I was struggling to work out what was what, also quite a lot of it is breakouts where we see more of the bank than the rver...
The main issue though, is that the title says "Campsite to Bala" but up to 5:50 (ish) is all above the campsite, and the last minute from 7:40 (ish) is walking from the takeout to the car park - there is almost as much footage of walking as of the actual section it claims to be of...

It is a nice enough video, but pretty useless as a guide to the lower Tryweryn.
