Called in on our day trip along the Cambrian Coast railway from our holiday base in Shrewsbury. Only had a couple of hours so not a lot of time to do much. Short walk from the town centre with good 360 degree views.

Managed to park just north of college at roadside. Its then just a short walk on the footpath to trig point. Great views over the town.

Parked, as others, in college car park on Allt Salem. Short walk on RoW initially, then clear path through gorse etc to trig sitting atop a rocky outcrop with surprisingly extensive views over the local area. Pillar, vgc on plinth, retains original top cap with raised lettering; rear sight hole open.

Bagging Geocache YSM314 Garn Pwllheli My notes said "Nice easy walk from collage CP (52 53.463'N 4 25.415'W)" It was a lovely walk but a little steep in places but it was getting late in the day and day 2 of the YOSM adventure in North Wales, if it was the first walk of the day you would probably say "easy"! Great views from the trigpoint on a lovely day.

Parked at college and followed a wee track across the road. Arrived at the trig with a great base and stunning views. Cheers.

Parked in the college car park (well, it was Saturday). Easy stroll to pillar which is finely perched above Pwllheli. Amazingly, the original cap is still in situ.

Nice easy pillar with great views in the late sunshine. Must be the only pillar you can see from a Wetherspoons. If you stand outside The Pen Cob next to the station in Pwelleli it's only just over a quarter of a mile away.

First TP of the second day on the Lleyn. Lovely morning. Energetic walk up to the TP on a rocky knoll. Yr Eifl in distance and the ultimate objective of the day.

Another suprising one. Parked on Allt Salem and came up the little footpath before quite a short steep climb up to the trig. Great views over the town and harbour.

Metal plug [raised letters]. Permissive. Hill is private land belonging to the property Y Garn, but public footpath runs across it, with permissive path from this to trig on rocky outcrop. Easy walk up from Pwllheli town, by either Allt Salem or Penlon Llyn.

I decided to re-visit the Trig Pillar as the weather had been awful last time I visited. Much better today, nice and sunny. Excellent views of the harbour and the surrounding coast.

Took a while to find the path leading to the Trig as there was no Public footpath sign. The trig was in vgc and all intact. Very bad storm when I visited so view from Trig terrible!
