The most stupendous all round views! You can see most of the Lleyn Peninsula and a lot of Snowdonia from here and we were lucky to pick a sunny day with a perfect breeze. Hoofing trig!

Walked up from sea level via iron man statue. At first tried to follow the path off the coast path that hadn't been cleared by a brush cutter! Not a wise move. Found cleared path to pillar. Seat, view indicator but little view through anticyclonic haze, memorial tablets.

Returning to Llanbedrog from a pedal and my backside needed a rest (no cycling shorts). Pootled up this little hill and rewarded with some awesome views. Lovely little hill and no issues with paths, however what's on the ground isn't necessarily what is on a map. I took a small slip road to the west of the hill that leads to Forget-me-Knott Cottage. PRoW goes through there garden and runs south east with a caravan park. Path ascends with stone steps and soon levels out. At T junction go right and do a short dog leg, once past a wooden bench to your right take the next path to the pillar. The two pillars accidentally visited today are for the gentleman who thought I should consider the Olympics. It goes without saying with dementia rife you just have to enter their world sometimes. So yes, off to Japan in summer.

Very nice area. We walked quite a long route as some of the "paths" up weren't as distinguished with heather and fern braches starting to take over a bit. But once close to the trig point, the paths cleared and it was lovely. Near by is an info board helping you point out and name the nearby mountains.

Parked in the NT car park at Llanbedrog. Climbed steep steps from the beach up to meet the coastal path. Not the easiest to navigate to as there is a lot of gorse covering some sections of the secondary path leading to the trig. Views are good from the top - looking over Abersoch.

Great location. Walked up path from Plas Glyn y Weddw to sculpture, then path inland to trig. Excellent toposcope nearby, pity was too hazy to see much of Snowdonia to east. Only downside a rather obtrusive plaque on large boulder near trig, commemorating someone who "loved this place" - I understand the sentiment but there's no need for it in this kind of wild area, especially as the same individual is also commemorated on the bench nearby!

There are easier ways to access this trig but fancied doing it the harder way so scrambled up cliffs from the beach and waded through waist-high gorse until a decent path finally encountered - not much to recommend this route, except the scramble. Pillar vgc on large square plinth; cap missing, asphalt plug; rear sight hole open. Superb panorama.

Camped in a little enclave at back of national trust car park last night and ate my Chinese veg curry on the beach in the moonlight and came exploring for the best way for this trig this morning. V clear moon skies have gone. who put in nasty sea mist and a stiff breeze with grey blanket overhead. This isn't what the forecasters promised!! Asphalt plug. Feel of wild moorland Lovely colour mixtures purples and browns in heather greens and yellows in the gorse. Wild and mighty chilly.

My chauffeur's local TP. His aim point for regular destressing walks from his property in Llanbedrog. Where would I have been without him today - he clocked up over 100 miles getting me round. Toposcope of sorts at the summit of this once island attached to the mainland by coastal and I suspect glacial deposition judging by the cliffs behind the village's beach. Big igneous intrusion. Metal figure is the Tin man.

Parked in the NT car park and walked across the beach to the footpath behind a house then up a lot of very steep steps to the top of the cliff. There is a strange wire statue of a person and spectacular views over the bay. Walk on along the headland then pick up the path to the trig. Great views from the top. Trig in good condition and an interesting display showing the positions of towns and hills behind it. Walked back down the easier way into the village for a well earned ice cream from the beach cafe. People still swimming in the sea at 6.15 in the evening.

Asphalt plug. Public. Access Land. AONB. Good path to top of headland from Llanbedrog, on landward side. Short access path to trig from viewpoint [seats]. Also steep steps from beach up to Tin Man statue, then path from there [good descent route]. For safety reasons, obey signs warning visitors to keep to paths on steep headland.
