Branded by NWP as “disgraceful”, the vandals covered a section of rocks on The Great Orme in pink paint.
The tourist hotspot is famous for it’s picturesque views and prominent headland on the North Wales Coast, with attractions such as a Dis-used Copper Mine, Cable Car, Ski Slope and Cafe on the summit.

Damage was also caused to wild thyme, lichens and other plants in close proximity.
A spokesman for Conwy Council said:
“The Great Orme is a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its geology and its plant life.
“The rocks are covered in lichens, some of which are particularly rare.
“It is home to numerous nationally scarce plants, many of which grow on the cliffs and rocks around the headland.”
