The Rhoscolyn walk will take you over some of Britain’s oldest rocks, back to a time before life as we know it. We will see evidence of ice ages and the movement of tectonic plates. We will also look at the intriguing history of the area, from Saints and Druids to ship wrecks and pirates.

The walk follows one of Anglesey’s most scenic walks. With the mountains of Snowdonia or Eryri in Welsh (meaning Land of Eagles) and the Llyn Peninsular as a backdrop, the cliff top route includes an ancient well, two sea arches and a stunning view with every step. There is also wildlife in abundance and you will frequently see Chough, Peregrine, and Seals, not to mention our resident mountain goat.

This walk is always popular.

This is a moderate walk of approx. 4 miles which includes some steep and uneven ground.

Important  to know: Our coastal walks generally require a reasonable level of fitness and agility as the coastal path can be steep and uneven in places. The majority of the walk is on the Anglesey Coastal Path although there is an area where there is an option of scrambling a short section over a few rocks to get to a particular feature. The path is slippy in places when wet and there are rocky uneven stretches around Rhoscolyn Head. It can also get muddy in places. Please discuss any concerns with us prior to booking.

Age appropriate: open to all, including well behaved dogs (usually on a lead)
