Eithin Duon is a picturesque ground set between the busy A4086 and a housing estate. You enter the ground small pathway between houses that brings you out in front of the changing rooms behind one end. This is the only part of the ground that doesn’t have any hard standing and is generally avoided by supporters.
Moving around the ground you will next come to the side of the ground that houses a snack bar that doubles up as a covered standing area in front, due to the roof having been put on as an extention to the snack bar, with the snack bar itself being an adapted, old container. The rest of this side is made up of hard standing and the two dugouts.
Behind the other goal are two very useful, small, stone shelters that have been built against the prevailing wind to offer good protection from the elements. I was pretty thankful for these on my last visit due to pretty poor weather in August of all months!
Finally, down the other side is a narrow area of hard standing with a few benches near to the halfway line that offer the only seating at the ground. From this side though you are treated to brilliant views of the Glyderau mountains in the direction of Llanberis.
I always enjoy trips to Llanrug, this is due to the setting, and the fact that Llanrug always tend to be there or thereabouts in the Welsh Alliance League One standings, which usually makes for a good game here.
