Short walk along the Llyn coastal path from Tudweiliog/Towyn on a breezy day. Nice cove with some mostly abandoned fishing huts.

Drove all way done to shoreline car park, lane very rough in places, lots of potholes. Short walk to trig point across grassy field. Several choughs flying along coast, Great location and coastal views.

Lovely day on The Llyn. Back down the coast path now to Penllech.

Yes you can just see the pillar. Top right. Not the water tank.

Parked at the end of the lane close to the trig. Very windy today. Remains of abandoned house (chapel?) nearby.

Final trig of a two day jaunt walking from Sarn Meyllteryn to Morfa Nefyn via Uwchmynydd. First passed by this pillar on a coastal walk in August 2007. Always a great place to visit when the sun is shining :).

Drove right to the end of the track and parked up for lunch hoping the rain would stop. Views certainly getting better. Easy bag east along coast path, through gate and diagonally R across the field. Council wagon joined us for lunch - quite a hideaway location much frequented, I'm sure, by utility workers without satnav spies in their vehicles. Lovely spot for holiday makers in summer.

At the end of another track you find yourself above a beautiful little cove with a beach and peaple launching boats. Short walk over the top to the TP. Lovely views.

Asphalt plug. Porthysgaden Farm [summer camping]. Private, but easily accessed, as separated from Lleyn Peninsula Coastal Path only by low, broken bank. Path muddy, so if walking from Tudweiliog, better use lane to farm & then good track [RoW] to coast. AONB.

A very muddy walk along the coastal path to this one, but the views were worth it.

Caught the Number 8 bus from Nefyn to Tudweiliog then walked via paths lanes to reach this trig point before walking back to Nefyn along this delightful section of unspoilt coast.

What a contrast to Penrhynmawr. Free access down a good unmade road right to the coast. The trig is just across the first field next to anb earth bank. Good views. Tarmac plug.
