Anglesey Circular Walk 1 -  The porpoise above was photographed during the walk back along the coastal path. The walk starts from the Pen y Cefn guest house where a very warm welcome awaits you from your hosts Colin and Jenny.  The B&B provides comfortable en-suite accommodation which has recently been refurbished to high standards. A delicious breakfast consisting of local ingredients of the best quality is served, which sets you up nicely for the day. Proceed along Stryd Salem downhill towards the town centre.  You will pass Rozi’s tandoori restaurant on your right. To see what we thought of our meal here see the Anglesey holiday report.  Next door you have the Copper Pot tea rooms.  You will pass through a collection of small shops, takeaways and pubs on either side of the road.  At the Dinorben Arms continue straight on, the road on the right takes you down to the port.  Continue to the T Junction where you will find there is a car park in front of you. Here you take a right turn towards Bull Bay, you will pass a nursery on your right as you make your way uphill towards Porth Lechog (Bull Bay).  The roads leads you past mainly residential dwellings, you will pass a Catholic Church on the right hand side which appears to have been the subject of substantial recent refurbishment works. As you continue along the road the dwellings start to become less frequent as green fields start to appear ( it was here that the photo of the cow between the two houses was taken).  The footpath continues uphill until you reach the golf course on the left hand side, as you reach the brow of the hill, you get your first sight of the sea. As you go down hill, you pass the entrance to Bull Bay golf club.  Just a little further down the road you will pass the Trecastell Hotel, here we enjoyed a good pub meal one evening (nice view over the bay from the conservatory). Immediately after the place name sign for Bull Bay take the road on the right and walk towards the Bull Bay Hotel.  At the bay you will find several seats where you can take the weight of your legs and admire the views. At the entrance to the Bull Bay Hotel take the small lane on the left.  Turn left onto a path and you will come to a kissing gate into a field. Bear left to a stile just beyond the field gate, then right up the drive towards “Ty Gwyn”.  Plenty of butterflies were to be found in this stretch.  Turn left over the field to “Glasfryn”. Cross the lane down to the field, follow the stone wall. Then bear left over the hill to the kissing gate. The ruins of the windmill is now well in view. Go down the dip across the stream and up the hill in between the two stone walls. At the top you will find yourself very close to the farmyard and windmill. Go through the farm gate on your right. Go through the next farm gate on your left, passing in front of “Pant-Y-Gaseg” farm and then go through the gates on the left side of the house. When we did this walk there did seem to be a lack of way-markers in this area,  Follow the track down the hill, through the farm gate, up the hill through the gorse (again when we did the walk this path was a little overgrown and shorts would not be advisable) and over the stile. Keep to the right of the next field and at the track turn left. Turn right at the junction. Go past “Porth Wen” house, then just before “Castell” farm bear right through the farm gates and two sets of gateposts onto the coastal path.  If you want to lengthen the walk you could take a detour here along the cliff tops and down to the old brickworks at “Porth Wen”. Follow the coastal path around the eastern cliffs of “Porth Wen”. The path is easy to follow and gives you a good view of the steep-sided inlets (in places this path was also overgrown with gorse etc. and trousers would be advisable to shorts). You will pass through a couple of kissing gates and then eventually come to a way marker after “Ogof Pwll y Delysg”. It was along this stretch that we photographed the porpoise from the cliff tops as it made its way down the coast.  The rock formation along this part of the cliff tops is also quite striking and interesting.  Bear right towards the “Bull Bay Hotel” (nice tree art in the garden).  As we arrived at the Pub on lunch time the beer garden was too much of an attraction and it was an hour or so before we had quenched our thirst and were on our way again. Depart the pub and take the road back to Amlwch.  After you have passed the Trecastell Hotel on the right and the lay-by on the left take the coastal path again on the left.  The path meanders its way along the cliff tops as you head towards where steps have been cut into the cliff to allow access to the sea.  Take a detour down to the water or continue along the path.  Follow the path and eventually it heads inland,after a few hundred yards the path joins a lane.  Continue down the lane and ignore the coastal path to the left. You will soon rejoin the road from Amlwch to Bull Bay.  Turn left here and make your way back to the starting point. Once back at the comfortable guest house we were able to reflect upon a thoroughly enjoyable circular walk which had taken us through some lovely countryside and back along the cliff tops.  A wide variety of wildlife was spotted along the way with the highlights being the Choughs on the rocks by the sea and the Porpoise which kept us company for 10 minutes on the way back to Bull Bay.
