This is a surprisingly gentle walk considering that it takes in one of 'the Rivals'- three spectacular peaks on the Lynn Peninsular in Wales. As an added bonus you also get to visit one of the best preserved and most spectacular hillforts in Britain. Tre'r Ceiri means Town of the Giants and at a height of 485 metres it offers spectacular views of the peninsular and Trefr, a small Coastal village. Enjoy!Show more

The spectacular Iron Age hillfort site of Tre'r Ceiri on a rocky mountain top above Nefyn. What a great site. A short steep pull up the higher neighbouring top of Yr Efil first to get a view across to Tre'r Ceiri. And what views all around. The north coast of the Lleyn Peninsula with its cliffs and beaches and the hills of Snowdonia to the East. After Tre'r Ceiri it was a short drive to take in the smaller site of Carn Bentrych. Much less spectactular but much more easily accessible.Show more
