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

Parys Mountains is very much a man-made made landscape, but well on its way to returning to nature. Amazing colours of rocks and well marked trail from the car park to the tower (a disused windmill) on the top of the hill. The paths are...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.

What an amazing place. Breath taking views and incredible colours in the rocks. The scale is hard to comprehend. Do take your camera. Well worth a visit, one you'll remember.

Wanted to visit this place for years. Wow, I wasn't disappointed, it's a surreal out of this world environment. I've been visiting Anglesey for fifty years and trust me on this one, if the sun is shining, there's no better location on the island!!

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.
