Mynydd Tir-y-cwmwd (132m) is a rock headland to the west of Llanbedrog on the south coast of the Llyn Peninsula, North West Wales. <br><br> Mynydd Tir-y-cwmwd is covered with gorse, heather, bracken and there is a continual battle with the invasive, albeit colourful, rhododendron. On my visit in 2011 there were a few small pockets of rhododendron reappearing. <br><br> Several footpaths zigzag across the hilltop and the locals have thoughtfully placed a couple of benches at the summit where walkers may choose to rest and be thankful. There are fine views, north and east toward the Snowdonia Hills, and west toward the tip of the Llyn Peninsula and particularly the wide expanse of golden sands that is Abersoch beach. <br><br> On the east facing slopes of Mynydd Tir-y-cwmwd stands a local landmark, the Tinman. The Tinman replaces an earlier Tinman or Ironman that replaced an earlier “wooden man” that was a figurehead from a ship. The statue overlooks Llanbedrog beach and invites exploration from the holidaymakers below. This however necessitates a climb of some two hundred steps …and not very good steps at that. Personally I do not think the Tinman is worth the effort of the climb, and it might be a disappointment to many, however this is more than made up for by the fabulous views from the hilltop.
