This stone is very easy to visit as it is right next to the road.
Access to the field is via a handy gate although it was very muddy.

The standing stone is approximately 2 metres tall and has that ‘hairy’ green lichen on it.

No trip to Anglesey seems complete without paying the stones at Pen-yr-Orsedd a visit.
This one is easily seen from the road, and is very tall and wafer thin. With one side often covered in cowshit, and farm machinery laying around it.
