Challenging - There is plenty of ascent and descent, and the Coast Path is rocky in places. The footpaths through fields may be muddy or wet.
A fascinating jaunt through an ancient ceremonial landscape littered with stone circles and other monuments, some of them dating back to the Stone Age. From the highest ground there are tremendous views over St Buryan with its sixteenth-century tower, the engine house of Ding Dong Mine, and the eighteenth-century Roger's Tower, a folly built on an Iron Age hillfort.
