I have walked this path many, many times and can recommend it most highly: stunning views, fresh sea air, invigorating air, and much more. One of my favourites- highly recommended!

Nice walk at sea level, well maintained with plenty spots to sit and rest, partly along a rocky beach. The best part of the path right around the lighthouse is closed "due to rockfall". If you can get to the closed section, it is awe-inspiring...More

If you can discount the ludicrous council for trying to stop you making the walk most days of the year... You can usually find a way round it. It really is health and safety gone mad but anyway it's a beautiful walk around some dramatic...More
