Walk - Kingsand, Cawsand & Penlee Point
3.6 miles (5.8 km)
Skinner's car park in Kingsand - PL10 1PG Skinner's car park
Moderate - Coastal path, inland footpaths, quiet country road, with some gentle ascent and descent.
A high path over coastal heathland, where butterflies twirl above the wildflowers in the grass beside the path and the breathtaking views out across the English Channel give sight of an assortment of vessels, usually including warships lying at anchor or patrolling the Channel. In the eighteenth century this was prime smuggling country and the headquarters of Zephaniah Job's notorious 'West Country Free Trade' enterprise. It was also a key area for the defence of Plymouth Sound's south western approaches, and the walk passes several of the Rame peninsula's military forts and batteries.
