Walks on the LLeyn Peninsula

Thirty walks exploring the Lleyn Peninsula’s stunning landscape, wildlife and history, enjoying panoramic views. The peninsula, with a line of volcanic hills forming its backbone, extends westwards from Snowdonia to the sheer cliffs at its tip overlooking Bardsey Island, a famous place of pilgrimage. Its beautiful varied Heritage Coast falls within a designated Area of Outstanding Natiral Beauty, some owned  by the National Trust. Running around the length of the peninsula is the waymarked Wales Coast Path, which opened in 2012.


The walks in this revised and updated second edition cover the spectacular coast, incorporating the best sections of the Wales Coast Path, as well as the peninsula’s low and high hills, offering panoramic views. The routes range from easy cliff-top walks to a climb up Yr Eifl, the Lleyn’s highest point.


Visit the Lleyn’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.
