Lovely dawn run.aucuparia14/07/2024
Took the paths up the hill from the Wales Coast path by the cottage. A quick win.PhilipChaston08/07/2024
The road on the E side is very narrow and has neither passing places nor parking places. Limited parking on sloping rocky patch (beware grounding) by phone box at SH155263. The RoW, NE, to Pwlldefaid was an impassable quagmire. Took to tarmac W of phone box for 100m then waymarked tk signed Talcen Foel (ignore any PRIVATE signs, its a RoW). Waymarkers ceased at the property (surprise), go 90 R on narrow PF to black gate and onto OA. To avoid worst of wind-stunted gorse take very thin FP, L, at white houseIsbjorn31/01/2024
Parked by chapel walked all the way around to the other side of the hill to house where there is a path up to summit, down path opposite back toward main pathTribal2er14/10/2023

Parked just down the road from the start of the public footpath. Nice neighbour let us park on driveway as going out. Left some cider to say thank you. Clear path up and down past an interest gate decorated with lions, muskets and birds.Hippy7712/02/2023
Good, but probably temporary, parking in front of cottage to be refurbed at 155274. Good views of peninsula and Bardsey.lordtonult07/11/2022
Very limited parking to ENE, up good path that heads south initially before turning to NW and up to summit.PeterD14/08/2022
8.8 mile circular from Aberdaron. Along minor roads north-west to Anelog then ascending by Gors Farm up to Mynydd Anelog's summit. We followed the coast path south to Mynydd Mawr (very spectacular cliff scenery here) then carried on over Pen Y Cil and along coast path back to Aberdaron. 625m ascent. Started in glorious sunshine but finished off in sea fog. Quite a few people about.DanTrig17/06/2022
Exhilarating circuit of the end of the Llyn Peninsula from Aberdaron via Whistling Sands and the coast path. Detoured to the summit of Mynydd Anelog on a day of sun, wind and choughs. Masters of the air. Thanks to Lesley and Ikuko. 12.5 miles, 2240ft ascent.GWR Chris03/10/2021

From chapel/phone box. Parking for about 5 cars. Excellent paths - great little hillCrib Goch25/07/2021
This is a straight forward walk via one of the footpaths in Anelog. Not many places to park along the road though. There's lots of ferns but a clear path and markings to show the way.Skarletk09/07/2021

Up the track from the chapel, followed a track through the low gorse bushes to the summit. A lovely bunch of choughs there! Went straight over to join the coastal track then stayed at the hedge boundary to return to the track. Lovely views.pog10010/08/2020

P near summit of Mynydd Mawr. Used coastal path. Visited Mynydd Anelog, then on return walk visited a little top at SH1440426120 (Llanllawen Fawr?- P20ish)& finally Mynydd Mawr. Quite a pleasant walk-good coastal scenery.ger16/07/2019

From campsite at the end of the road to Mynydd y Gwyddel. Circular route along coast to Pen y Cil, then inland on road just before Aberdaron to Mynydd Anelog and coastal path to Mynydd Mawr and campsite. With Gillian. Mike and Harriet joined for the first part. Lovely sunset from Mynydd y Gwyddel after dinner.richard6914/04/2018
A splendid walk with Twice Shy (Alex) from the chapel. Up via the Pwlldefaid path to the east (one short boggy section) and then the cottages below the hill. Nice grassy path to the top, and lovely views. Back via the western path and track.Gill09/03/2018
Feel more at ease with this hill now, after the revisit, because the first time I was up here was before I'd started bagging. Stunning views eastwards right back to high snow covered Snowdonian peaks. And, of course, Ynys Enlli, which we'd only just returned from. Very memorable morning indeed.Twice Shy09/03/2018
From chapel parking to SSW, followed tracks and paths to summit.rhalstead24/12/2017
Pleasant circular walk on well marked paths from Uwchmynydd chapel on a very windy day - great viewpoint though the day wasn't clear. Promoted Marilyn not in my original list.JohnIvor14/10/2017
This was to be a great day Marilyn bagging on the Lleyn in calm weather conditions while my friends got wet walking near Tryfan. I parked near the chapel and had an easy walk up from there. I met another Marilyn bagger from Scotland at the top and had a nice chat on the way back down.Father Ted07/10/2017
With K from Chapel to S. Nice hillAshley25/07/2017
A few more days off work so I reasoned it was time to tidy up my North Wales Marilyns. The expected rough weather scuppered any chance of boating to Bardsey but I decided to visit the missing Lleyn tops anyway. First up turned out to Myn. Anelog. This because when I arrived in Porthmadog a biblical style thunderstorm rolled in. The weather had cleared by the time I got to Aberdaron but the tops were still in mist. Easy climb from the Uchmynydd chapel. Limited views when the mist parted.stig_nest19/07/2017
Easily up from chapel as others and path to summit above top craft cottage. In mist so no views.Lionel Bidwell15/07/2017
Space for several cars near chapel at SH155263 (note that there is another chapel shortly before you get to it). Went up via the track which starts just W of the chapel and heads NW. Circuit via the coastal path and coves on the way back.webmaster26/06/2017
From the church, up the lane to it's left, then gated track to self-catering cottage. More gates and paths to open hillside and straight up ridge behind another cottage. Saw nowt due to low cloud.Minto10/06/2017
