Quick dash up this hill from the car park to the SW by all the family. Lovely views - not a lot of high ground on Anglesey so does stick out a bit.Ham and Skate19/04/2019
Quick evening round of the three hills here with my brother, from a layby near the lake (didn't know there was a car park was at the base of this hill, should have checked here first!). Easy and obvious path up this one, superb views across the whole island and beyond from the top. Liked this one so much we brought the rest of the family back later in the week.wheresthepath14/04/2019
