Back from North Wales

Had a week off walking the coast paths of the Lleyn peninsula. The weather was a bit mixed and I had some fun navigating in hill cloud. In passing I managed a couple of historic sites.

Criccieth castle, originally built by Llywelyn the Great, but enhanced by Edward I and II a stunning location.




Tre'r Ceiri, the largest of several hillforts in the area that was in use until at least the 4th century.


The walls are quite rough stone but over two metres wide and the site is covered in the remains of roundhouses.

Now back to some painting

Tre'r Ceiri looks interesting. Always wanted to visit. Was it much of a trek up to it?

Cheers, Andy

Andy, Tre'r Ceiri is about an hours walk from the car park we used, there is one slightly nearer. We walked over all three of the tops, the first picture is taken from Garn Ganol, which is a scramble up and down.
