Walks on the Llyn Peninsula

Walks on the Llyn Peninsula

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.

Each walk chapter starts with a brief description and information about how to get to the start. The main detailed route description has numbered paragraphs and a sketch map with the paragraph numbers shown as location points is included.
