Carmel Head

This is at the north-western tip of the island, from which there are spectacular views over the Irish Sea and towards the Skerries with its red and white lighthouse. The coastal path to Carmel Head, whether from Ynys-y-Fydlyn to the south or from Cemlyn to the east offers some of Anglesey's finest scenery.

Copper workings took place in this remote spot, and some evidence of it remains to this day, with ruined buildings, and a factory chimney. The two tall triangular structures are known locally as the White Ladies, and were navigation aids. They line up with the rocky island of West Mouse or Maen y Bugail, on which may be seen another white beacon.

Much of this area is owned by the National Trust, and there are some seasonal restrictions on access to some areas during the shooting season. Pheasants are reared for sport in the woods nearby.

The island immediately off-shore is Ynys-y-Fydlyn, the northern side of which contains a sea arch.
