"BEDDGELERT, (or Bethgelert), a parish in the hundreds of Evionydd and Isgorvai, in the county of Carnarvon, and of Ardudwy, in the county of Merioneth, North Wales, 6 miles to the S. of Snowdon, and 14 miles to the S.E. of Carnarvon, its post town. It lies in the centre of a mountainous district, rich in the grandest and most diversified scenery, embracing mountains, waters, woods, and cultivated valleys. Snowdon itself is partly within this parish, besides several other principal mountains of the great range. The village, a small number of scattered dwellings, is seated at the confluence of the rivers Claslyn and Colwyn, at the foot of the mountain Moel Hebog, which rises to the height of about 2,580 feet."
