Portobello House - Llys Dulas Estate

Hi Wil


The title above says it all, really.

My father and I are walking the coastal path in stages over the next 12 months and this is part of our next stage to be completed in November 2011.

We'd much prefer to make the crossing than go up to the Pilot Boat and back.

Kind regards,

Mark Murphy




Hi Mark

It's good idea. On paper at least and I've thought about it a number of times myself. I love Traeth yr Ora for its general peace and quiet.

One problem that made itself obvious to me immediately I arrived near Portobello (which is the Llys Dulas family's Summer House) past Porth Helygen and Porth yr Aber is that one would be stepping onto private land.

Therefore, while on my Ordnance Survey map (it's in front of me now) it looks straightforward, but you've got to cross private land/shoreline.

By the way, Porth yr Aber means 'Gateway to the Estuary'.

I've never been in the vicinity at very low water, as I prefer to vist the area at high water to see the seals.

To ensure that you get hold of correct information about thie estuary, may I respectfully guide you - as a first port of call - to those people partly responsible for this Premier Anglesey Gem. They are the Anglesey County Council Planning Department: 01248 750057.

They may pass you on to Menter Mon. Snowball until you get to someone willing to advise you.

What I would have a go at myself and what advice I'd offer another may not necessarily be the same; however, I put you and your Father's wellbeing first.

Listen, the Anglesey Coastal Path is the Anglesey Coastal Path and in truth by rising up from the coast your view toward Moelfre and Penmon, Puffin Island and Llandudno beyond is wonderfully enhanced.

My best wishes to you both.

Wil
