A small village on the edge of the Snowdonia national park has been given official gateway status by the national park authority.
Llanfairfechan, of which only a third is inside the park boundary, has been recognised by the authority and will appear in its literature thanks to the efforts of local councillor Ray Jones, the North Wales Weekly reports.
Councillor Jones told the paper "a lot of people, especially walkers" come to visit the area.
The park authority said the importance of Llanfairfechan rests in its capacity to act as a gateway to the Carneddau ridge at the northern end of the park.
It has six mountains over 3,000 ft, these being Carnedd Llewellyn, Carnedd Dafydd, Pen yr Ole Wen, Yr Elen, Foel Grach and Foel Fras.
Garnedd Ychaf - a small rise on the ridge reaching 3,037 ft above sea level - is sometimes considered a seventh.
Other local peaks include Tal Y Fan, which is the northernmost 2,000 ft mountain in Wales.
