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.

If you visit Anglesey don’t miss Parys Mountain, it really is worth an hour or two of your time. As many have already said the scale and the colours are incredible, but if you look around you can see breathtaking views in every direction. We...More

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.

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.
