Starting from the old slate port of Felinheli rafts proceed past historic Plas Newydd and on towards Menai Bridge. En route passing beneath the iconically spectacular engineering and structural feats that link Anglesey to the mainland - the Britannia and Menai bridges, built by Robert Stephenson and Thomas Telford; and navigating the notorious and occasionally demanding Swellies.
