Great place for walking. Hills covered with heather and gorse. I passed an upright stone under a nearby tree with what looked like an OS mark at SK75380 77499. See photo. Just noticed that this was previously logged by "trigging on an island' Perhaps he used the tree for the same purpose as me!

Parked in the busy western car park then bagged Penmaen-bach, Conwy Mountain and Conwy FBM on a very sunny morning.

Parking at middle car park on Sychnant Pass Road. FBM on N side of dry-stone wall on the North Wales Path, easy spot. Height tag missing otherwise good. Conwy Mountain short distance NE.

The FBM is tucked in next to a dry stone wall next to a track on the lower southern slope of Conwy Mountain in Snowdonia to the west of Conwy Town. It appears to be in good condition with the usual plaques but has lacks a height tag. The view is of the mountains of Snowdonia and the hills of Denbighshire and Clwyd. It was visited on a very pleasant walk on Conwy Mountain from Sychnant Pass.

Visited on a walk from Conwy to Penmaenmawr to log several trigs in the area. I also noticed a rock with the familiar OS Benchmark symbol on it nearby (see pic).

Another FBM we didn't know existed, just stumbled across it at the end of a walk on Conwy Mountain, Penmaen-Bach and Alltwen. After just stumbling across 2 FBMs we decided to actually look for them next time.

The first FBM I've been to that isn't on the roadside. A lovely walk in with views of the Carneddau, Great Orme and Puffin Island. Wild horses around saw a stoat on my way back.

Easy to find close to a stone wall along a byway from Conwy on Mynydd y Dref (Conwy mountain). Nice walk from Capelulo and good view over the bay and Ynys mon.

Caernarfonshire. My "furthest from a road" FBM. Good views from nearby Conwy Mountain.

Hard against a stone way, near top of Conway Mountain. Unusual place for FBM. Worth going to top, views across Great Orme to Isle of Man on a good day, and inland to Snowdonia. Pillar OK, surrounded by ferns.

Location, hill fort in background

A most unusual spot for an FBM, hard up against a dry-stone wall and well off the road. It has three metal plaques but no height plaque. Easily spotted this time of year as the brackem has died! Lovely views from here especially S towards the hills.

no height tag, usual 3 plaques, the English one tucked away round the side. S side of track against wall, slightly obscured by bracken. Just E of Conway Mtn sign (which is well worth a visit while there)

The most 'remote' FBM that I've visited, wonderful location, take the time to visit the hill fort on the summit of Conwy Mountain, the views are superb. I'm only saying Slightly damaged because the Height Plate is missing, otherwise all in order.

The views from up hear are excellent and access is possable via the Byway or several footpaths, although expect your 4x4 to get scratched if driving.

Cambrian Way journey's end in sight on a glorious sunny day. I am recording my visit but will need to check my journal to see if I spotted the block (if it was here then) so this is not a "proper" log.
