Total steps: 5

Start point

Llanbedrog beach National Trust car park grid ref. SH 33017 31530

Step 1

On leaving the car park, cross the road and walk up towards Plas Glyn y Weddw.

Step 2

Here you will enter the grounds of Wales' oldest art gallery, Plas Glyn y Weddw. Walk past the house and the outdoor theatre towards the beginning of the footpath through the woodland. The path is a gradual rise towards the headland of Mynydd-tir-y-Cwmwd

Step 3

After climbing the final stone steps onto the heath plateau you will be rewarded with views of Cardigan Bay and the mountains. The famous Tin Man sculpture is at the top of the heathland looking down onto Llanbedrog beach and the bay. Once you have taken in the beautiful scenery, follow the path which circles the headland.

Step 4

There are more fantastic views as you make your way around the headland. You will be able to see the St. Tudwal's islands and Abersoch.

Step 5

After leaving the path you will come onto a track, then a tarmac road. When you reach the tarmac road, turn right. You will now be in the upper part of Llanbedrog and will come down a hill past the church hall. Take another right back on to the beach road and return to the National Trust car park. If you're in need of refreshments, there is a café at the art gallery or there's the Glyn-y-Weddw pub (not National Trust) back towards the main road.
