WALK

LEVEL 2 & 3

From the 106 acres Breakwater Country Park at the foot of Holyhead Mountain, created in 1990 for people to learn about the working of this once busy quarry that supplied the limestone and heat resistant bricks to build the 1.5 mile breakwater at Holyhead. Lake Llyn Llwynog which forms an attractive part of the park with local wildlife and with its scenic trails tinged with pink Sea Thrift in the spring.

We take the path here round the back of the mountain to North Stack with its Foghorn House and Parliament Cave where the seals bask. Up to the summit where we pass an Iron Age settlement called Caer Y Twr with rampart walls and is an imposing three metre high fortification, where there is  a possibility of spotting seals, dolphins and porpoises out at sea.

We now descend to South Stack where the cliffs here are vital breeding grounds for over 800 nesting birds and where the RSPB Ellins Tower is a look out across the sea and below Sea Stack Island where the South Stack lighthouse is situated and accessed by 400 steps and a suspension bridge. This lighthouse coastline is famous worldwide for its bird and marine life, beauty and maritime history.

We now return and take the lower path round the front of the mountain and finish our walk back at the Breakwater Park.
