Not a day for the hills. Heavy fine rain hence a poor view. Caught bus from Bangor and made a detour up Twt Hill before following coast path back to Bangor. Evidence on the hill top of a recent heath fire.

Nice early evening stroll up. Access on a lane off the Twthill East road. Pillar found generally in good condition, some graffiti on the top; cap missing, no plug; both side sight holes open. Extensive 360deg views. A lot of history for a small hill - not even a tump. A very pleasant sunny spring evening, wandered up onto Coed Helen next - which is a tump.

Lovely spot. Great views. Can see Snowden covered in snow and the peaks on The Llyn. Path opposite church. This is a gem not to be missed if in North Wales. Only a few hundred yards from the traffic island in Caernarfon with easy parking at LL55 1PF Dwwyrain Twthill.

Arrived in Caernarfon a bit early for a weekend with old friends so two of us walked up here. We made a bit of a pigs ear of finding the right track up but got there in the end and were rewarded with good views in fading light.
