Challenging – 7.0 miles (11.3 km)
A long walk, travelling high above a ragged rocky coastline where turquoise water washes onto golden sand and seabirds such as fulmar, razorbill and guillemot nest noisily on the cliffs. These rocks have been dramatically sculpted by the waves into islands and pillars. Smugglers’ caves nestle among the stacks and arches, while the towering headlands above provided ideal sites for prehistoric promontory forts. The path borders tranquil farmland where the endangered corn bunting is making a comeback. This is a good walk in autumn.
