Wilderness Wales


Lleyn Peninsula

A large peninsula in the northwest of Wales, Lleyn is about two times the size of Gower. Boasting large sandy beaches on the southern side, the northern coast is more rugged. Unlike Gower there are some big hills in the area, a number of them qualifying as Marilyns. The highest hills are the Yr Eifl group, often referred to as "The Rivals". At over 500m, these hills are geologically a westward expansion of the Snowdonia mountains.
