Penrhos Feliw Standing Stones, Holyhead – Not the famed stonehenge but yet a wonderful stone structure. Each stone is 3 meters tall and at least a meter wide. Historians believe that the area was once a stone circle either for cultural or religious practices. Be prepared to capture pictures with the Holyhead mountains in the background.
