Elidir Fawr is a mountain in Snowdonia, north Wales, the northernmost peak in the Glyderau.
To the north of the summit is a small lake, Marchlyn Mawr, which is the upper reservoir for Dinorwig power station, a pump-storage power station hidden inside the mountain. Water from this lake flows through huge tunnels into the lower reservoir Llyn Peris. From the north, Elidir Fawr is very prominent, and can appear to be higher than the higher mountains behind it.
There's a hiking trail (T2) leading to the summit. Elidir Fawr is one of the 17 peaks along the Welsh Three Thousands.
