Pilots’ Cottages, Ynys Llanddwyn

The Pilots’ Cottage, Llandwyn

As well as its mystical associations with Dwynwen, Llanddwyn was, until fairly recent times, important for its lifeboats and for the pilots that helped guide ships into the Menai Strait.

One of the cottages where the pilots used to live is now a little museum display showing how it would have looked when the pilots were still in residence.

The cottage museum is open for a little while most days during the school summer holidays (late July thru August).

The small cannon that stands outside the cottages was used to summon the lifeboat crew (way before mobile phones and beepers).

The cannon at Llanddwyn used to be fired to summon the lifeboat crew.
