Holyhead Mountain & South Stack Walk

This walk over 500 million year old early cambrian quartzite has some of the best views and most stunning scenery in the UK. You will learn of the early history of the rock, laid down as sand in a warm shallow sea, through the stresses and strains of mountain building and the opening-up of the Atlantic Ocean, to the scouring of the ice ages and on to modern day. With Chough and Peregrine circling our heads, we will be walking in the footsteps of the Celts, Romans and 19th Century Quarrymen, and looking out on a perilous stretch of coast and hearing tales of the sea.

Please be aware this walk will last 4-5 hours with a break for lunch / refreshments at South Stack RSPB Cafe.
