Newport and Carn Ingli

Just me and "The Navigator' today and we were off to the seaside and an inland hill.

The long lasting dry period was still with us and we had good stretches of sunshine.


We parked the car near the bridge which crosses the Nefern and then walked along the coast passing the Parrog below Newport and a coffee break overlooking Newport Bay.

Very little to be seen today

We carried on along the coast and cut up through the valley by Aber Fforest passing a picturesque waterfall. The footpath which led to the right was then taken which leads up to the main road and across to a continuing path leading on the hillside above Newport and our route to Carn Ingli.

At Carn Edward we had an afternoon coffee coming close to a snooze in the sunshine.

We soon reached our high spot of Carn Ingli where there were reasonable 360 degree views although the weather was not fully clear.

We climbed down and took a path which led us back to the car via a stop at an ancient cromlech, Carreg Coetan.
