My first pillar on an out island of the British Isles. Parked by chapel and walked up track to CG Lookout. Skirted round gorse covered mound towards the shelter and followed an easy track to the pillar. Exceptional views to today to the N.Snowdonia 3000s, N.Coast of the Lleyn and across Holyhead Island and Anglesey - quite glorious. Pillar has the cap missing otherwise all is good.

Cycled most of the way on farm track via Plas. Pillar 10m NNW of summit of Hirfron. Located in area of cliff top grass,flowering gorse and glacier smoothed outcrops of schist. The area appears to be open to public access. Very fine views, white horses galloping into the the sweep of sand of Cymyran Bay. Gusting SSW wind, blue sky and sunshine.

I used the car park at Ty-crainge and followed the coast path; a pleasant and not too taxing one mile walk on a warm, sunny afternoon. The summit is surrounded by gorse bushes but there are ways through… if you’re not wearing shorts! The pillar is in good condition, apart from the missing plug. The views are excellent with Ynysoedd Gwylanod clearly visible on the southern horizon and Holyhead Mountain on Holy Island to the north.

Visited on a walk from Holyhead to Valley, which also included Tre-Arddur trig pillar. Came along the coast path to the north, with strengthening winds and choppy seas. It was blowing a gale up at the trig point and I was very glad of the nearby stone shelter to stop for a snack. Given better conditions I'd rate this pillar even higher, but today it was still worth no less than 8/10.

Another pillar I must have walked pretty close to when I walked the coast of the island in 1985. I parked the car at the church and made the mistake of taking the wrong track to the sea, heading west instead of south, but it is highly recommended as the bay at the end of the track to the west is beautiful. After visiting the trig I sat in the stone shelter out of the wind and pondered what to do next.
