Mariandyrys

Limestone grassland common with views of Snowdonia and Puffin Island

Mariandyrys offers magnificent views of the mountains of Eryi and Traeth Lavan. At various times, there are blue carpets of spring squills and a beautiful show of the white or pale pink flowers of common spotted orchid, the purple saw-wort and the yellow common rockrose. The abundant wildflowers provide opportunities for butterflies and their caterpillars to feed
