Bardsey Island
Bardsey Island
The third largest offshore island in Wales (at about 500 acres) and reaching a height of 548 ft or 167 m. It lies almost 2 miles offshore. It was first settled in the Neolithic period and is supposed to be the site of the burials of '20,000 saints', having had a monastery established by Saint Cadfan in around 516 AD. Today it is a wildlife and bird haven and an SSSI and NNR and home to Manx Shearwaters and Atlantic Grey Seals.
