After leaving Aberdaron the route takes you away from the coast for a while before returning to the sea at Porth Ysgo. This small cove was once a hive of activity during the heyday of manganese mining. In 1945, mining came to an end and today it is only visited by walkers and climbers who love the boulders and cliffs the cove has to offer. After the gentle climb past the village of Y Rhiw you will arrive at Plas yn Rhiw. This small sixteenth century manor house was renovated by the Keating sisters during the twentieth century and bequeathed by them to the National Trust in 1949. The views from the grounds and gardens across Cardigan Bay are among the most spectacular in Britain so don’t miss out!
