Walk - Baggy Point
4.5 miles (7.2 km)
NT Baggy Point Car Park - EX33 1FF Baggy Point Car Park
Moderate - Two fairly gentle climbs.
A breathtaking stroll around a windswept headland between two sandy beaches. Baggy Point's dramatic cliffs are home to many nesting seabirds and unusual wildflowers, while the crumbling stone walls dividing the ancient fields on the top of the headland are encrusted with lichen. Take a picnic and make a day of it on Putsborough Sands. A lovely walk in autumn, when the heathland is vivid with gorse and heather and flocks of migrant birds gather ready for their long journey south. The headland is exposed to Atlantic winds and the weather can change abruptly, so wear warm clothing.
