Llŷn, the north-western peninsula of Wales, is strongly influenced by its coastal nature. Nowadays, its walking paths and beaches attract many to explore their heritage and natural beauty. These also open doors to the past and several layers of Welsh history. You can speculate about standing stones and cromlechi and Celtic hillforts, admire the rectitude of farmers who toiled the land, the courage of granite quarrymen and the adventurism of sailors. There is also a more literal pilgrimage, following the footsteps of Welsh saints and monks through the parishes on their way to Enlli – the sacred island of Bardsey. This book, with its collection of beautiful images, offers and insight to the story, without losing sight of what’s happening here today.
