According to Gerald de Barri (1146 – 1223) while on his tour of Wales, Meirionnydd was one the most rough, deserted, and inaccessible areas of the whole country.

The main towns of Meirionnydd are Blaenau Ffestiniog, Barmouth, Tywyn, Bala and Corwen. In 1974 most of the Edeirnion area became part of the county of Clwyd and then more recently has become part of Denbighshire.
