Last tump of the day and completion of Holy Island. First a 3 tump circular with Lesley, climbing Tre-Wilmot followed by South Stack and Holyhead mountain. We parked up at the pub, had a drink then walked to Borth Wen where i left Lesley to continue on the coastal path to just past the Coastguard station and headed over on a path to the top. I walked all round the windshelter then returned to Borth Wen visiting a Cromlech just off the beach.Dazingdale16/07/2019

From large beach-side car park at Borthwen Bay. Visited volunteer manned coast watch post first for chat then up to top. Interestingly, coast watch chappie was sure his post was the HP - seemed disappointed when I had to let him down. Chuffed to watch Choughs on way up and again on the return leg. HP has a fancy stone-built shelter structure, with trig pillar a few metres N.jonglew18/09/2015
