I have struggled to find many positives in this walk.
You turn your back on Dinas Dinlle and head for the main road – the A499 and most of the route straddles the busy main road.
An easy walk with excellent paved path which also doubles as a cycle route. Occasionally taking the old road through villages and then returning to the A499
Be alert, having passed the junction for Penygroes, at the next junction you need to turn left and then right.
The highlight of the route is St Bueno’s Church at Clynnog Fawr. A great example of a Tudor Church, almost cathedral in size. Sir Clough Ellis Williams who masterminded Portmeirion said that this church inspired him to be an architect. Well worth a visit.
A little further along is St Bueno’s Well, one of the healing wells in Wales.
We are following in the steps of pilgrims travelling to Bardsey and the church and well remind us of the religious significance of this route.
We were very relieved to turn off the main road towards Trefor and the final mile of the walk.
