Poem engraved into rock below Dinas Oleu
Mawddach Poem (1891) by Canon Rawnsley, engraved in rock below Dinas Oleu.

Who planned upon this mountain rock to build
High o'er the shifting sands of Mawddach's flood,
They knew the soul of man had need of food
From Heaven and that the world's Creator willed
That from far hidden deeps should hearts be thrilled
With touch of ocean's wild infinitude.
They drank the dews of morning as they stood,
And with the sunset's latest awe were filled.
