    Mynydd Bodafon is the highest hill on the island of Anglesey, North Wales and translates as Buzzard Mountain. Although Mynydd Bodafon refers directly to the hill, it is also the name of the surrounding geographical area which is rich in farming history contributing to Anglesey being historically known as the Bread Basket of North Wales.
