We managed to get a walk round here with just an hours daylight left, what a little gem of a place, you really need 2-3hrs to fully explore. It’s an opencast copper mine dating back 4000yrs but heavily mined from circa 1750, now reclaimed and...More

We spent a lovely few hours walking here with the dog. Can’t believe what a lovely day for late October. So many things and lovely views to admire. First rate for outdoor lovers.

Never seen so many varieties of coloured rock in one location. A "must see" if you are on Angelsey. Not an easy walk for the disabled.

You can go at night but I think it would be pointless as the colours and geology would not be visible and these are the main reasons to visit Parys Mountain.
