Walk - Clodgy Point
3.3 miles (5.2 km)
St Ives Station St Ives Station
Moderate - The path is rough in places, and there is some ascent and descent, though none of it is steep or prolonged.
An invigorating walk, starting from St Ives Station and passing through some of its granite-cobbled streets through Porthmeor and out onto the South West Coast Path as it travels through the open heathland of Clodgy Point, rich in wildlife. The route returns through the ancient landscape of patchwork fields bounded by tumbledown granite walls: a prehistoric system granted special protection as being among the world's oldest man-made structures still in use today.
If you are starting the walk above Porthmeor Beach, follow the route directions from 3. After Ayr Holiday Park, at 8, turn left and walk downhill to return to Porthmeor.
