    I think, if your standing on the harbour at Aberystwth to get that view over the sea you will be looking North West-ish towards Pwllheli.

    Usual stuff: how high the peaks are; distances; how much should be hidden; how much is visible; what should be seen on a flat earth; and photo comparisons.

    Maybe pick what you think is the best one and work on that?

    Playing with Google Earth it seems that Snowdon should be behind the castle. Easier to spot from the sea... castle.

    This appears to be Garn Fadryn, 1217 feet high (mountains in the UK are tiny)
    Garn Fadryn A. Garn Fadryn B.


    Rough pixel measures show about 48/117 pixel missing so 1217*48/117 = about 500 feet missing. A fraction of 0.41. It's 38 miles away, and 33 feet eye height:

    Almost exactly right for standard refraction - so very good viewing conditions.

    I started making list and was going to get the bearings, but you seem to be on top of it already!

    I am fairly sure that you can't see bardsey at all from that sort of position/ elevation, so that seems about right.

    Mynydd Rhiw Elevation: 304 m - second photo with TV mast
    Carn Fadryn Elevation: 371 m - Mick's no.3
    Garn Boduan Elevation: 279 m - no.4?
    Yr Eifl Elevation: 564 m photo - no.5?
    Moel-y-gest Elevation: 263 m
    Gyrn Ddu Elevation: 522 m - no.6?
    Craig Cwm Silyn Elevation: 734 m no.7?
    Garnedd Goch Elevation: 700 m no.7?

    Mynydd Enlli (Bardsey Island) Elevation: 167 m - not visible

    Here are views of North Wales, Bardsey island and Snowdon from ~ 100m* altitude, from the base of the monument on the top of Pen Dinas. Images are much cropped, and enhanced, because of worse viewing conditions today.

    North Wales from top of Pen Dinas. Bardsey from Pen Dinas. Snowdon from Pen Dinas.
    *Edit. Google Earth lied about the height. The camera height was closer to 129m according to SHCC..
