Had stayed in in the morning to avoid rain. It cleared up and I ventured out and ticked one pillar but the rain returned as I reached the footpath access. Pointless visit for a view now.

Unfortunately because of the weather we were unable to enjoy any views and appreciate the monument, we were more concerned with not getting blown off!

This was my best trig pointing walk in Wales, outside of the Snowdonia National Park, to date. I started off by following the coast path west from Cemaes Bay: past Wylfa Head, the nature reserve at Cemlyn Bay and, over the rocky promontory of Carmel Head, before at last making it up Mynydd-Y-Garn. Mile after mile of rolling farmland of the Isle of Anglesey was laid out before me to the south and beyond, the mountains of mainland North Wales stretched out along the horizon from the Carneddau in the east, right through to Bardsey Island at the tip of the Lleyn Peninsula. It seemed like it should have also been clear enough to view Ireland to the west, but alas, not quite clear enough.

View south towards Lleyn

Also parked to the west and walked up on the official footpath. These roads are so narrow it can be hard to park. Lovely white trig sat next to a monument with brilliant views all round. Helicopter hovering over a small fishing boat out at sea.

Can be seen from miles around and consequently good views. No sign of gorse fires now. The most striking sight (aside from the Irish ferry, Anglesey Aluminium chimney and Snowdonia) is Wylfa power station. Apparently Wylfa is earmarked for a new nuke as the current one will soon become a monument to 1950's "energy will be too cheap to meter" Britain. as of summer 2010 there are several houses close to the Wylfa site boarded up apparently as a result of local government speculation that Wylfa II is on the cards. :-(

Metal plug [raised letters]. Public. National Trust. Quiet road-walk round from Rhydwyn, field-path onto NT land, then good footpath up the hill. Pillar [still very white] & monument visible from miles around. William Thomas was a Victorian shipping magnate & philanthropist.

Nice location, on National Trust land, but very tricky parking. the whitewash has survivied well or is recent. Rasied Lettering plug still there. Sadly the picture of the plaque I took is out of focus so cant provide the translation (didnt stop to read it at the time :-( )

Painted white and next to a monument to William Thomas. Unfortunately the inscription is entirely in welsh so we're none the wiser to what his particular contributin to humanity was. Nice spot though, even if parking is a bit tricky. Plug with raised lettering.
