Aberffraw to church of St Cwyfan

Aberffraw coastal path walk to the church of St Cwyfan and return. A really nice little walk taking in part of the Welsh coastal path on Anglesey. Starting in Aberffraw at the free public car park, you leave the car park via the hump backed bridge and then follow the coastal path signs, the walk then follows the coastal path to the church of St Cwyfan. From here the walk comes inland on lanes to complete the horseshoe back to the car park in Aberffraw. Great coastal views off the west coast of Anglesey with Snowdonia in the distance to the south. The walk takes you to the old church of St Cwyfan standing on the walled island of Cribinau, a unique place, well worth the visit.

Yr Eifl Tre’r Ceiri – The Rivals 3 peak walk

Yr Eifl’s 3 peaks are called The Rivals in English, the last includes the magnificent hill fort Tre’r Ceir.
A stunning walk, with great views and history. Starting at the public car park you follow the obvious track taking in the the first peak on the left affording great views of the sea and coast. (GPX does not include this as unfortunatley it was in my rucksack left at the bottom of this peak!). From there you walk to the main peak Yr Eifl, the last section is a bit of a scramble, but so worth it at the summit. from this peak you walk down and back up to the third peak which houses the famous Tre’r Ceiri Hill Fort – a well preserved hill fort with both walls intact in places and many circular foundations of dwellings. From this peak you walk back to the start. A really worth while walk!
