At E end of undulating ridge carpetted in colourful Gorse and Heather. Great views. Gets a 'slightly damaged' rating as a metal spice has been hammered into a lower sight hole.

Pleasant walk along scenic headland from Ty'n-llan to Porth Wen. Pillar found in good condition a little east of the hill's high point. Original cap in place with deeply indented lettering; rear sight hole open, but capped with a metal plug. Outstanding panorama.

Parked on road near the footpath sign. Walked down path and round the sea side of it past the copper mines and then went up to it. Much less gorse this way. Great views on a lovely day.

Slightly awkward to get to. Visited whilst on a coast walk from Amlwch to Cemaes Bay. Most northerly trig pillar in Wales. A really great area.

My 1000th trig. This one typifies why I like the hobby. A great walk from where Barnsley Skip suggested parking. Great views and a little adventure. Saw an adder basking in the Spring sunshine and got a good photo. Went to do a nearby cache and almost fell down the rock. I'll have fondmemories of this place. Thanks guys for the websire.

Nice walk from Bull bay to Cemaes along the costal path. The pillar is not visible from the actual path and I had to leave the path and climb through lots of bracken and gorse to reach the pillar. Well worth the effort though for the view!

Metal plug [indented letters]. Public. Access Land. AONB. Excellent walk along Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path from Cemaes to Bull Bay. Trig atop huge quartzite crag [hence the name "white rock"]. No access path - just wade through the bracken & gorse. Accessible from the coastal path only - no attempt should be made to reach it from the road by crossing the private farm land.

Anglesey, north coast, on rough hill overlooking cove. Fenced, with walks nearby, but probably private. Good condition. All sound. Private

not quite public access, a lot of rocky bumps to choose from, as no sight of trig on way in.

An interesting walk along the coastal path from a parking spot - one car only - just past Ty-du. On the way to the trig we passed quite impressive industrial ruins. Some kind of installation on the shore and a small headstock nearer the trig - something to do with copper mining I presume. Lovely coastline. Plug with heavily indented lettering.
