Tirglyn Family Camping & Caravan Site

Welcome to Tirglyn, Aberdaron


The Lleyn Peninsula is rich in wildlife - both plants and animals. The area is a bird watcher's paradise. The rare but distinctive Chough is frequently seen along the coastline, with its glossy black plumage and orange-red legs and beak.


In season, puffins are seen out in Aberdaron Bay and around the Gull Islands (Gwylan Fawr and Gwylan Fach). You can book a boat trip locally to get closer to these wonderful birds.

When exploring the area, a visit to the RSPB's Osprey Project at Glaslyn (near Porth Madog) is well worth the journey.

Other species seen in the area - buzzards, linnets, gold finches, yellowhammers, swallows, sand martins, gannets, cormorants, manx shearwaters, fulmars, kittiwakes, oyster catchers, plovers, little owls, kestrels, stonechats, curlews - to name but a few!


The grey seal is a common visitor to the beaches around the Lleyn Peninsula. They can often be seen resting on the rocks, or swimming around in secluded coves.

Bottlenose and common dolphins are also seen around the Peninsula - again, boat trips can be booked locally.

Hares, badgers, stoats, hedgehogs, foxes and harvest mice have all been spotted in the area.

Plant life is also abundant - at the right time of year orchids are in flower, and the smell of wild honeysuckle growing in the hedgerows is sublime. A holiday around the Lleyn Peninsula is a nature lover's dream - where you get get away from the hustle and bustle, and enjoy a coastal retreat.
