Llanddwyn Island is a rocky promontory off the south-west tip of
Anglesey and is linked to the "mainland" by a narrow strip of sand and
rock. Despite its remote location, it is home to a row of pretty cottages that
were used by pilots assisting shipping through the Menai Straits, the ruins of
an abbey and what I presume was a lighthouse. The view is stunning especially
towards the North Wales coast where an amazing array of mountains is on view including
Snowdon if the weather is fine. In this view the three peaks immediately to the
left of the cross are the Rivals with the ridge from Gyrn Ddu to their left.
