Welcome! and thank you for stopping and giving us some of your time. In this fast paced world, time is an ever precious asset and we value it greatly, we also value your time and your love of North Wales.
I built this site for people who really have a soft spot for North Wales and who love returning time and time again. If you have visited us, you will already know what a wonderful place it is, with unspoilt empty golden beaches around most corners, stunning mountain scenery and green luscious pasture.
This site began with a small blog a while back in 2017 and I started mainly talking about the things I was personally doing, but seem to have outgrown the original platform, so we are scaling up our platform. Hopefully it will serve our community much better.
With interactive google maps for most of the things you are searching for, hopefully you can discover the right accommodation, places to eat and the best things to do, and also find out “whatson” at lighting speed on a mobile device.
So who are we you may ask?, Well I’m a local marine geologist come blogger, named Nick Fraser. I moved back to the area 7 years ago but previously lived here for over 30 years of my life. I know the area intimately and I’m an passionate Welshman. My family have been here for many generations, from Lighthouse keepers, to fishermen, captains and pilots Our linage has been tied to this area for quite a while so we have a few stories to tell.
I am a big outdoor sports enthusiast and spend a lot of my time participating in sporting activities all over North Wales, from climbing to water sports. “Whatson” is a creative outlet for me to show you from a blog and video perspective, what this part of Wales has to offer. It truly is the unsung corner of the world with breath- taking nature, scenery and culture.
I hope, if you have not already visited us, that you will do so in time and see for your own eyes the beauty and diversity that North Wales has to offer.
