Failed to find car park, which is just off the road but not signposted, at 470853, so parked by small lake further on. Pleasant short triangular walk - busier than I was expecting.

Staying at a cottage 20 minutes walk away and saw the trig point from the access track every day. Could not therefore ignore it! Excellent views in all directions but particularly to the south where the Snowdon range on the mainland is very prominent. Unusual feature are the 4 direction indicators on each of the faces at the top of the pillar.

Ran up this one while my girlfriend waited in the car park at the bottom. Great location, nice easy walk/run up and the best view at the top. Loved the hill/landscape guide on each side of the pillar. Felt like could see the whole of Anglesey from up there and will re-visit just to take in the views again

A very short walk up onto the 'mound' on which this trig sits. We were en-route from Holyhead back to the hostel at Capel Curig and took the opportunity to visit this Marilyn & trig. Flat country here, so although not very high (at 168m it only just makes it as a Marilyn) there are quite extensive views - over flat country; not very exciting! The pillar is in good condition and has a pictorial on each side of the trig of the views that can be seen, similar to the trig at Holyhead Mountain.

I visited this because it is one of two Marilyns on the island. It is a surprisingly easy walk up from the car park and just two yappy dogs to contend with. The track up to the car park is very rutted so take care.
