A Walk Around Holyhead Mountain

This is an interesting route that circumnavigates, though rather a large word for a small hill, Holyhead Mountain rather than climbs it. As you get to within 50m of the summit, it makes sense to climb it while you’re at it. There’s the added bonus of the RSPB run cafe at the end of the route, for a well earned cuppa and cake.

You could also walk this route from the Holyhead Breakwater Country Park.
