  BEWARE..............
The last all year round Monday to Saturday connecting Sherpa service to Betws-y-Coed - Llanrwst - Conwy - Llandudno
via Nant Gwynant (Watkin),  Pen-y-Pass and Betws-y-Coed departs Beddgelert at 1610 and Nant Gwynant at 1615

a later "S4" Sherpa departs Beddgelert at 1745 and Nant Gwynant at 1750  in the summer only

Don't Dispair
    In the unlikely event you are unfortunate enough to miss the 16.10 direct "S4" Sherpa to Pen-y-Pass or you decide
you wish to spend longer in Beddgelert there are later Sherpas from Beddgelert (Gwynfor "S4") at 1600 and 1805 to Caernarfon
with onward connections    
    There is also an even later "S97" Sherpa from Beddgelert at 1835 (also Nant Gwynant at 1822) with connections via Porthmadog,  Blaenau Ffestiniog and the Conwy Valley Railway Line or Porthmadog,  Caernarfon and Conwy
"Red Rover day tickets" are valid on these alternative BUS routes back to Llandudno or Llanrwst/Betws-y-Coed  (but NOT the faster Conwy Valley Line trains)
