The fifth century missionary St Piran is said to have washed up here on his millstone after he was banished from Ireland, and the walk visits the remnants of his oratory, as well as various other holy sites attached to his name. There is only a little gentle ascent and descent and the paths are mostly sandy and fairly easy underfoot.
