Walk - Black Head & Castle Gotha
4.3 miles (7.0 km)
Ropehaven car park - PL26 6BH Ropehaven car park
Moderate - A strenuous route, with some steep ascent and descent which can be slippery after rain.
A figure-of-eight walk visiting the sites of two prehistoric forts in an area said to have been the seat of King Mark of Cornwall, uncle of the tragic Tristan of Arthurian legend. The route travels through the woodland above the steep cliffs at Ropehaven, where past landslides have created a haven for wildlife. Look out for fulmars and housemartins overhead.
