Rhoscolyn

Details

Rhoscolyn is a village located on Holy Island, Anglesey. It is just over five miles south of Holyhead and is the most southerly settlement on the island. The name Rhoscolyn is said to mean "The Moor" (Rhos) of The Column (colyn).

A little to the west of the village is a mediaeval well dedicated to St Gwenfaen; the local church in the village itself is dedicated to the same saint and was first built in the 6th century.

Just south-east of Rhoscolyn is Borth Wen, a sweeping cove of sand backed by dunes with rock pools on the beach.
