Lleyn Peninsula

Pictures from the Lleyn Peninsula

Lleyn view

Like much of rural Wales, the Lleyn Peninsula is made up of fields divided by stone walls, with sheep scattered about.

Clynnog Fawr

On the way there we took a break in the village of Clynnog Fawr and walked around, looking at St. Beuno’s Church.

Tre’r Ceiri

On one of Yr Eifl we climbed up to the remains of an Iron Age hill fort that was inhabited around 2,000 years ago, named Tre’r Ceiri.

Aberdaron

The road ended at Aberdaron, which is the last village at the west end of the peninsula. (Our car is the one parked on the grass in this picture.)

Coastal path

From Aberdaron we went for a walk along the coastal path and around the tip of the peninsula.

Bardsey

At the end of the peninsula we could see Bardsey Island. This was once an important pilgrimage site, and it is now a bird reserve.
