Dog friendly articles and ideas
Hamish started from the beach car park at grid reference SH 376 473. He was staying at dog friendly Bach Wen Farm Cottages, a ten minute drive away.
Follow a metalled drive from the car park towards the harbour wall - picnic tables, an information board and a dog waste bin are just inside the wall. Bear left at the junction of the drive and wall and follow a clear track along the shore (with the sea on your right hand side [RHS]). CONTINUE AHEAD across a concreted area and through a wooden kissing gate into National Trust 'Morfa' land.
Note information board and follow a way marked path - starting at a marker post just beyond the board. Follow the path around the headland, mostly near to the cliff edge (you dog should be on a lead as the drops are sheer in places and animals are often in the fields). GO AHEAD through a kissing gate close to the cliff edge and as a white house comes into view. CONTINUE AHEAD with a fence on your left hand side (LHS) and cliff on RHS until you reach a track between walls. TURN LEFT towards the house, passing through a wooden gate then BEAR RIGHT in front of the house (West End on map). Follow a clear track as it BEARS HARD LEFT uphill (don't go through a gate ahead). A quarry and Yr Eifl (hill) are now on your RHS.
CONTINUE AHEAD through a wooden gate towards another white house then BEAR LEFT uphill on a track just before the house (don't go through the gate into the house's garden). Follow the track as it bends uphill and above the white house - continue towards a grey stone house. Join a made up track by the garden wall of the stone house (note National Trust 'Nant Bach' sign on your RHS). Follow the track AHEAD with the wall on your LHS to reach a metalled lane between the wall and another stone house.
TURN RIGHT along the lane under a bridge, then downhill to a road junction. CONTINUE AHEAD through 30 mph signs into Trefor. CONTINUE AHEAD over a stream, then SLIGHTLY RIGHT at a junction to pass in front of the shop and by the Ysgol / School sign. CONTINUE on lane as it BEARS LEFT in front of a chapel. As the main road bears right (sports ground on LHS) take the LEFT FORK onto a more minor lane signed to the beach (lane passes behind bus shelters). Follow the lane as it zig-zags downhill between houses back to the car park.
