May Bank Holiday out Walking

Druids Circle

With all our campers out and about enjoying their holidays and our children off elsewhere, my husband and I were at a bit of a loose end this May Bank Holiday, and with the weather so good we just had to get out and enjoy this wonderful place we’re so fortunate to live in.

As usual with us it was a bit of a last minute decision on the Sunday to go walking. The destination also had to work with the critically timed drop-off that my youngest had organised with a friend who had rendez vous at the local climbing wall, the Beacon Climbing Centre in Caernarfon. So, with son dropped off, and a very excited terrier (Archie) in the back of the car, no camper this time we headed over to Anglesey to enjoy a brisk coastal walk.

Llanddona Circular, Anglesey

This 4 mile walk starts and ends at Llanddona Beach car park and follows the Anglesey Coast Path east to Bwrdd Arthur. Bwrdd Arthur (meaning “Arthur’s Table”), is a large flat topped limestone hill and the site of Din Sylwy a pre-historic fort. A detour to the top of Bwrdd Arthur is well worth a visit for its 360 views. From Bwrdd Arthur the walk winds its way through rolling countryside back down to the coast and Llanddona Beach car park.

It took us around 2½ hours with a couple of stops for a picnic and a panad.

Penmaenmawr Upland Walk

On Monday we were busy with our latest camper, Lola who will soon be available to hire but later that day we had to play taxi service to our youngest son – again! This time strict instructions to collect at 6pm from his friends house close to Penmaenmawr, nr. Conwy. With the weather still glorious I wanted to make the most of it and a visit to the Druid’s Circle, high above Penmaenmawr is something I’ve wanted to see for quite a while.

This circular walk is picturesque, and takes you into the Carneddau mountain range with stunning coast views, and if you are lucky like we were you may see some of the native Carneddau ponies.

The walk in part follows the Pilgrims Way and the North Wales Path waymarkers past a small circle of five boulders and on to the Druid’s Circle. Despite its name the circle has nothing to do with druidism! Excavations in 1958 dated the circle to the Bronze age between 1450 – 1400 B.C. a thousand years before the Druids came to this area.

From the stone circles the walk heads back down a steep grassy path to Penmaenmawr and then back up to Mountain Lane where we parked our car. It took us around 2 hours to complete this walk
