From the holiday cottage near the top
of Allt Goch Bach – Little Red Hill – west
and south is ancient woodland of ash, oak,
beech and holly. North, down the steep incline,
is Beaumaris – with its redundant castle,
gaol and quays, its narrow streets and low,
thick walled houses. East are the Menai Straits,
the A55 and the Carnedd range.
Some say the ‘red’ was the blood of the last
of the Druids – or the Royalists.
