Views over Pwllheli from Pen-y-Garn
Pen-y-Garn stands over Pwllheli, yet is only 71m
above sea level. It is only a short walk to the top,
and the views are excellent. However, even on a hill
of this modest height there is some scrambling
needed near the top.
Views extend over the town and across Cardigan
Bay to the Rhinog Mountains behind Harlech and down
to Pembrokeshire on a clear day. To the north this
Yr Eifl and the Gyrn hills on the north coast of
Llyn, whilst to the southwest is Abersoch and St.
From the road, walk through a pedestrian gate and
onto a track which bends around to the left. When
the path opens up onto a grassy area, turn sharp
right and head up the hill. Towards the top you will
need to climb some of the rock faces slightly.
Beware on rocks that are wet as they are slippy,
even if it seems that everything else is dry.
Enjoy the view!
