Walk - Rame Head Chapel
2.0 miles (3.1 km)
Rame Head car park - PL10 1LH Rame Head car park
Easy - On a good coastal path and quiet lanes, with some short stretches of up and down.
A high headland with a bird's-eye view of the coast for a long way in both directions, Rame Head has long been a lookout point. Celtic warriors built a rampart across the neck of the headland to defend it from possible attack, and medieval monks kept a light burning here to warn sailors of the rocks after St German established their chapel in the Dark Ages. This is a short loop around the headland, which is a great place for bird-spotting, especially in autumn, when hobbies, merlins, peregrines, hen and marsh harriers and short-eared owls have all been seen passing through. On a day with good visibility you should be able to see Eddystone lighthouse.
Part of this walk starting from the car park is classed as Easy Access. The climb up to Rame Head Chapel is steep but able to be accomplished by those of, at least, a moderate fitness. Pushchairs and wheel chairs have plenty of space in which to safely explore the headland.
