Snowdonia Mountain Peaks Make £1m at Kivells Auction

The peaks of Moel Cynghorion and Foel Goch, have been sold to an undisclosed buyer at a Kivells sale in Llanberis.

Kivells describe the land as a “remarkable run of mountain, moorland and rough grazing” and says it comprises a number of redundant stone farm buildings or cottages that may be suitable for conversion to residential or holiday use.

Before the sale, Gareth Clubb, director of the Snowdonia Society, said he hoped it would be bought by a farmer sympathetic to the environment of the national park.

He said: “We would like to see this piece of land managed sensitively to accommodate the biodiversity of the area.

“It’s a piece of open moorland which is undeveloped.

“It’s very wild in winter and likely to be covered by snow for an awful lot of the year so there are limited possibilities for development but we would like to see it retained for farming.

“I’ve no idea who can spare £1m for a piece of Welsh highland, but there may be some local farmers who might be interested in buying it or it could be somebody from outside the area who fancies showing off the sight of Snowdon to their friends.”
