Porth y Gwin
Porth y Gwin
Part of the heavily fretted coastline on the west side of Holy Island. The rocks here are schists which vary between a silvery green and a coarser brownish shade. There is much folding and minor faults which create this jumbled coastline. In the distance is South Stack lighthouse on its little island.
