I too parked by the cattle grid near the mast for an easy walk up to the trig point from there admiring the views over the sea etc. I do like the Lleyn!

Walked up from Clip y Gylfinhir where there's plenty of parking. Could have driven all the way as good vehicle track. Pillar sits atop a large rocky boss that is the high point of the hill Mynydd Rhiw. Original (?) metal cap is retianed, with no lettering; RHS sight hole open. Extensive panoramic views. The destroyed pillar that this replaced (FB S1623) was sited 15m due S.

Great view of Bardsey Island and the end of the Lleyn Peninsula. Very much worth a visit to this quiet area - also has a great view of Snowdonia once past the radio mast.

A long weekend in Harlech so time to bag a few Gwynedd trigs, wonderful views from Foel Goch on the way in yesterday and today to what the NT board says are some of the most beautiful views in the country. I'll take their word for it, a drenching drizzle, cool wind and visibility which would hide a whole crowd of dragons. Thank goodness for trigs and marilyns to drag us out, the woods round Rhiw still beautiful and full of birdsong, spring is near (?) P.S. walked!

Even the dragons running...

Previous log said "Track from transmitter to south driveable for 4X4 (possibly car also)". You don't need a 4x4! We, I managed it in a wee Fiat 500 hire car! Great views from up here.

Out here for two days collecting the remaining trigs and hills on the far end of the Lleyn. This one was always going to be the pick of the bunch. Some notes from Primary Trigs in Wales about the original primary pillar sited here. Constructed 17-22nd October 1936 by Lance Corporal White, costing 17.18/0d. Using 10 cwt sand, 15 cwt gravel, 5, cwt cement. Reciprocals: Yr Eifl, Garnedd Ugain, Llanlian Church Belfry, Cader Idris, Aberystwyth, Capel Cynon, Llanfaelrhys Church Belfry, Holyhead. No observations, light only.

Turned up the lane and parked just past the radar station. Lovely walk to to top with good views. TP sat on a pile of rocks. If you wanted, you could easily get any car to within 30 feet of the TP.

This one was the ultimate in sloth. My chaffeur was offered the chance to drive up to the TP. Wanting to try out his variable terrain programme and low ratio gearing in his LR Disco he jumped at the chance and took me to within 20 metres. He discovered(sic) that he needs to check in his vehicle to have his variable terrain programme checked as it overheated the drive. Anyway hill fog prevented any views so I envied PC's views from the TP.

Hill fog!
