Anglesey

 

 

 

Walks around Anglesey (Ynys Mon)

The Isle of Anglesey is renowned for its stunning coastal scenery and maritime history. Most of the coastline falls within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The AONB includes cliffs, rocky headlands and coves, award-winning sandy beaches, sand dunes, small harbours, salt marshes, woodland, heathland and several low hills offering panoramic views. This diverse landscape provides a rich habitat for wildlife, including sites for cliff nesting seabirds, sea caves for choughs and woodland for the endangered red squirrel.

 

This revised second edition, now with 42 linked circular walks, explores the AONB and its fascinating history. The routes, which range from a 2¼ mile Copper Mine Trail to a 10½ mile exploration of Holy Island, include the best sections of the waymarked Anglesey Coastal Path and the island’s high viewpoints.

 

They pass lighthouses and beacons installed in the 19th C to help protect shipping. They feature old telegraph stations, ancient churches, impressive Neolithic burial chambers, Iron Age hillforts, old brickworks, Holy Wells, a country park and an opportunity to see the rare red squirrel. Also Parys Mountain, once the world’s major source of copper, and the nearby historic port of Amlwch.
