Ynys Gored Goch is a small island in the Menai Strait which can be clearly seen from the Britannia Bridge which crosses the water from the mainland to Anglesey. On the island you will see a white house and a converted smoke house where fish (whitebait) were smoked. Access to the island is only by boat.
Due to its location between the two Menai bridges, the house and island frequently appear on photographs of the Menai Strait.
As you pass the exits for Llandudno you will see an obelisk on the top of the hill.
The 64-foot obelisk was built as a folly in 1993 by the owners of the Bodysgallen Hall hotel. It is located in a meadow on a limestone ridge above a former quarry on Pydew mountain. The meadow has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest on account of its grassland and flowering plants. Initially the folly met with fierce local opposition but it is now an accepted landmark.
