Walk - Cawsand & Polhawn Forts
6.2 miles (10.0 km)
Skinner's car park, Kingsand - PL10 1PG Skinner's car park
Challenging - Coastal path and inland footpaths, with some quiet roads. There is a lot of ascent and descent, some of it steep.
A high walk around the fishtail headlands of the Rame peninsula, from Kingsand on the Plymouth Sound to the delightfully-named Wiggle Cliff above Whitsand Bay. The route, passing some of the extensive Victorian fortifications built on Plymouth's Western Approaches to protect Plymouth Sound and the Naval Dockyards, will appeal particularly to anyone interested in military history. Look out to sea, on a clear day, to see the Eddystone lighthouse.
