Porth y Swnt, Aberdaron
Porth y Swnt, Aberdaron
The National Trust Interpretation Centre is taking shape on the car park in Aberdaron and is due to open at the end of March 2014. It has been named Porth y Swnt, by the winner of a competition in the local schools. Porth means gate or gateway. It is often taken to mean harbour, but in fact "porthfa" is the word for harbour - though this is often shortened to porth! Y Swnt means "the sound" referring to Bardsey Sound, the infamously rough stretch of sea between Bardsey Island and the mainland
