Barmouth is home to the annual Three Peaks Race and is in fact where it was first suggested by a couple of local GPís in 1977. One of them pointed out that the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales (Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis and Snowdon) are close to the sea and it would be fun to visit each by boat and then climb them. Barmouth is first recorded as a small port on the Welsh coast in 1565 and during the 18th and 19th centuries Barmouth and the Afon Mawddach developed as one of the major shipbuilding centres in Wales. Today Barmouthís maritime history can be enjoyed on a trip to the Sailors Institute which was built in the 1890ís. Two other important properties also near the harbour are Ty Gwyn and Ty Crwn. Ty Gwyn dating back to 1460 and was one of the first four buildings to be erected in the shelter of the anchorage boasting a splendid example of a Tudor ceiling whilst Ty Crwn is the old jail built in 1834 as a lock up where offenders waited before being taken to the local courts or Dolgellau jail. Today Barmouth is a traditional seaside resort offering miles of sandy beaches overlooking Cardigan Bay and with extensive views of Snowdonia which is easily accessible. Barmouth offers a myriad of leisure opportunities for the visitor and the success that it enjoys today is entirely due to its superb location.
