Lleyn Peninsula Coastal Path

Llyn Coastal Path Walking Guidebook

Llyn Coastal Path Walking Guidebook

by: Des Marshall
The Llyn Peninsula is 30 miles long and extends into the Irish Sea on the north side and into Cardigan Bay on the south side. The Peninsula was travelled by many pilgrims on their way to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island) and some sections of the Coastal Path follow these ancient footsteps. The Llyn Coastal Path is one of the great walks of Britain.

A fit walker will be able to complete it in a week without much difficulty. Although a good percentage of the route is very well waymarked and finger posted there are, however, sections that are not marked at all. The first 17.25 miles from Caernarfon to Trefor are mostly completed on road, the next 62.25 miles to Pwllheli follows a rugged coastline. The remaining 17.25 miles to Porthmadog are alongside, or on, beaches interspersed by short sections of road walking, making a total of almost 97 miles for the walk as described in this book.

The book begins with a short informative introduction to the Llyn Peninsula. The route is described in seven day-walk chapters each with concise route finding instructions in numbered paragraphs plus a sketch map also showing the paragraph numbers for easy navigation. The instructions are interspersed with italic text giving information about points of interest along the way. Some practical information including public transport is provided at the end of the book.

The seven day stages are as follows:
Caernarfon to Clynnog Fawr - 14 miles
Clynnog Fawr to Porth Dinllaen - 14 miles
Porth Dinllaen to Whistling Sands - 14.75 miles
Whistling Sands to Aberdaron - 8.25 miles
Aberdaron to Trwyn yr Wylfa - 6.5 miles
Trwyn yr Wylfa to Pwllheli - 12 miles
Pwllheli to Porthmadog - 17.25 miles

Llyn Peninsula OS Coast Path Walking Map Guide

Llyn Peninsula OS Coast Path Walking Map Guide

by: Northern Eye
This map is essentially an Ordnance Survey Explorer 1:25000 scale map of the Wales Coast Path covering the complete Llyn Peninsula section. But it has the additional benefit of having the map in a book format. This innovative concept makes it a perfect companion for walkers on the Trail as the book format is more convenient and easier to use while outside compared with a large paper map. It is also more cost effective, reducing the need to purchase several OS Explorer sheets necessary for a linear route.

The complete llyn Peninsula path is covered in 44 pages of full colour mapping, beginning at the Menai Bridge and travelling in an anti-clockwise direction to finish at Porthmadog. The path is clearly marked on the maps and there are symbols showing facilities at the main towns and villages. There is also a page with useful contact information and a short introduction with a photographic mosaic.

The Llyn Peninsula is a remote unspoilt peninsula that juts 30 miles into the Irish Sea off north-west Wales. At its tip is Bardsey Island, the 'burial place of 20,000 saints' and a place of pilgrimage from the Middle Ages to today.

Much of the coast path runs through the Llyn Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Along the way you will enjoy tiny pilgrims' churches, cliffs and headlands, hidden coves, and long empty beaches. The coast is bright with wildflowers in spring, and alive with birds and butterflies in summer. You also have a good chance of seeing seals, porpoise, dolphins, peregrines, and choughs.

Walks on the Llyn Peninsula Kittiwake Guidebook

Walks on the Llyn Peninsula Kittiwake Guidebook

by: David Berry
The 30 walks in this book explore Llyn's stunning landscape, wildlife and history, and offer panoramic views. They cover both the spectacular Heritage Coast, incorporating sections of the designated Llyn Coastal Path (now part of the Wales Coast Path), as well as the peninsula's low and high hills.
The routes are varied, ranging from easy cliff-top walks to a challenging nine-mile exploration of open hills and moorland and a climb up Yr Eifl, the highest point on Llyn.

Follow in the footsteps of the early pilgrims who journeyed along the coast en route to Bardsey Island. Visit Llyn's many ancient churches and former fishing villages such as Abersoch, Aberdaron, Nefyn and Porth Dinllaen, now popular tourist destinations. Explore rocky headlands, small coves and fine sandy beaches, such as the famous Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) and the popular Porth Oer (Whistling Sands). Look for seals and nesting cormorants on a cliff-top ramble, or marvel at Tre'r Ceiri, one of the best preserved and most spectacular hillforts in Britain.
