Misty, so no views today! Ample parking to south at start of forestry track.huwthomas04/04/2018
A nice walk from the forestry track to the south, and a good path all the way. Fine views, and a nice open summit area. Quite pleased that the morning snow had thawed off this hill, giving a nice easy stroll, a bit of a relief after an earlier, very snowy ascent of Gryn Ddu.Gill08/03/2018
Up and down from Nefyndavidpettit8401/01/2018
On Public Footpath from end of track to SW.rhalstead24/12/2017
Family walk. From the Nefyn car park. Tracks and paths through felled woodland to the Iron Age hill fort on the summit where we had lunch. Returned by same route and then on to the Ty Coch Inn at Porthdinllaen.Herbert Anchovy25/10/2017
My last Welsh Marilyn. climbed with a group of friends I used to be in college with some 40 years ago. The biggest challenge was squeezing all the cars into the parking spot at the bottom to the south. Good path all the way up. Celebrated with some Bucks Fizz and so carried away forgot to take the flag out for the pictures. When we went down we went into Nefyn for a look around the Nautical Museum and saw a film that included a bit about the hill fort on Boduan.Father Ted08/10/2017
With K. Hill fort very interesting. No access problems from S, where parking is easy. Other walkers on hill reported blocked paths to N.Ashley27/07/2017

From car park at side of dilapidated Baptist Chapel in Nefyn. Forestry works closed track to summit, but they had all knocked off work by time we got there Friday evening; in fact looked like they had knocked off several months previous! Fine rocky summit with a platform bolt trig.jonglew19/08/2016

Solo evening walk up from Nefyn, as a prelude to two days of Wales Coast Path walking. This is a wonderful hillfort, the round houses are beautifully preserved and the stones ramparts (outer and inner) are very imposing. Great views of neighbouring Carn Fadrun and Yr Eifl. I was here about two hours, during which the gloom cleared and the sun came out.thesweetcheat07/05/2016
Walked up the forestry track. Amazing view from the summit, if a little windy. With stig_nestLaura.W09/03/2016
3rd Marilyn of a very windy day with Laura W. From b4354 by Gorphwysga house a steady forestry track leads up to an older path which becomes narrower near the top. We were waiting for a steep bit but one never came. Super views..wasnt even that clear and yet still a superb panorama. Yr Eifl in particular.stig_nest09/03/2016
Parked at the start of the forest track on B4354. Again easy access to this peak. Quickly ascended and enjoyed the old fort and the hut circles. Started to rain on descent to add to the wind. Company: Soloiandesbottes01/01/2016

The square concrete base is a platform bolt, a rare type of trig.Alex C28/06/2013
Alonetallscottishguy12/06/2013
Short easy tick with fine views and another fort at the top. The iron age people must have been worried about security or just liked a house with a good view.mindlessflogger07/04/2013

From CP at Tan-y-Graig. Wound our way up easy-to follow tracks and paths through forestry, then cleared area to top with a little rampart- a pleasant enough hour. Very hazy and very warm for March. With brother, Pete,pwheeler18/03/2009

Forestry track from SE to start, left this when it went off to the R. More overgrown section of bracken and heather led to a very stony area on top. Square concrete base with tiny cairn there.Aye Jimmy03/07/2007
Very pleasant little hill, approached from the road.DavidGMould28/05/2007
