The railway by now was familiar. Take the 0540 train to Smethwick Galton Bridge followed by the 0630 train to Machynlleth. From there, it was the simple matter of taking the 0857 which arrived in Pwllheli at 1112.
Arriving at Pwllheli, I found that the open air market was in full swing, so I spent a few minutes inspecting the stalls before catching the number 18 bus at 1205. The bus took me on a brisk journey through Abersoch and many country lanes before depositing me at Mynydd Cilan, near the extremity of the Lleyn Peninsula.
I started my journey at 1240 under blue skies with a light wind and a pleasant walking temperature. The route took me along a lane to the hamlet of Pen-y-groes which turned out to be a single whitewashed cottage.

I quickly reached Llanengan at 14:02, my destination, after an easy 3 miles stroll. There was time to admire the village church before catching the 14:36 bus back to Pwllheli.
