Penzance to St Ives 4-day hike - Day 4: Gurnard's Head – St Ives
An invigorating walk along the wild and windswept cliffs between the romantic, rocky shoreline and the stone-walled patchwork fields of a traditional landscape which has been farmed in this way for 5000 years. Mine chimneys and engine houses are dotted among the granite outcrops, and the coastal heathland is home to many rare species of plants, birds and animals.
