Panorama 242 - Llanddwyn Island

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.
