Parked up a bit S of the rly station, over the bridge, by the 'private road' sign. Pleasant walk through golf course etc to a stunning headland given its lack of height - a wild sea making it more so. Pillar has no top cap or plug; LHS sight hole open. Despite the low cloud the sea-scapes were super.

Parked down lane to station, just enough room to get one car in before the bridge over to rail line. Walked up lane to Penychain farm then through golf course on footpath passing new holiday lodges. Footpath signs are few and hard to follow, so followed the vehicle track that heads towards the ruins at Penrhyn. The footpath then is lost in an overgrown track between hedges. did manage to find a gate giving access to the coastal path and the trig point. Not easy by any means and rain never stopped once.

Got off the bus outside Hafan Y Mor and then walked through the holiday park, bringing back childhood memories of the days when it was still Butlins. The panorama of Cardigan Bay from Pen-ychain was just as magnificent as I expected, with a bracing wind thrown in too to help heighten the senses. I returned inland, past the train station and then up to Pentyrch trig pillar (even better).

Cycled on mountain bike from Criccieth via Chwilog so lots of off-road. Great ride except for puncture on way back.

A bike would have been good as it doesn't seem possible to drive along the track. Last farm is not occupied. Wettest track in the Principality from Penrhyn to the rocky mound on which the TP is located. Lovely setting on a lovely morning in February.

Quite delightful

One of the best. Parked just down the lane from Penychain railway station and had a lovely walk through a farm to the trig. Perfect weather and superb views. Lots of people enjoying the day, many from the huge Haven holiday camp nearby.

No plug. Trig behind & above headland on Lleyn Peninsula Coastal Path. SSSI open to the public. Easiest access through Hafan y Mor holiday camp & along coastal path. RoW south from Penychain station very muddy.

Good all round views, althought couldnt see that far due to the haze. Seems to be rememnents of the war around headland.

Square concrete pillar on a square concrete pedestal. Spider centre missing. Coastal trig on what would be a nice remote headland if it were not for the nearby holiday camp.
