Mynydd Anelog from Mynydd Mawr, at the tip of Llyn.
Mynydd Anelog is only 192m above sea level, but
being directly above the sea does exacerbate this!
The hill is in the western extremity of the
peninsula, with only Mynydd Mawr (which you can
drive to the top of) any further out in the Irish
Sea. Here you are less than 50 miles from the
eastern shores of County Wicklow in Ireland.
The walk starts down a little lane, signposted as
a dead end, which branches of the main lane you have
just driven down, just below the chapel. At the end
of this lane, you have to go through a gate (there
is a public footpath sign here) and up through a
field, where there is often a horse and then through
another gate. The path then runs around the side of
the hill - keep right and the path then bends around
to the left ahead of which is a small house, the
highest on the hill. Just before this house, turn up
the hill to go around it and then pick your way up
the final slopes. The path here is very steep and
There is a cairn on the summit, from where you
can take in the views and find out if you can see
Ireland! Return the way you came, or alternatively
for a longer walk, turn left when you get back down
above the highest house and follow this path through
a farm and onto a small lane. Turn right here and
follow this lane to the next junction, which you
should recognise as you drove past it on the way, so
all that is left to do is to turn right and walk
back up the road to the chapel.
