Walk - Mount Edgcumbe - Rame

10.7 miles (17.3 km)

Mount Edgcumbe Mount Edgcumbe

Challenging -

Leaving Mount Edgcumbe, 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. 

A short stroll downhill to a rocky shoreline prized by geologists and dotted with the remnants of fishermen's cellars and Georgian military defences. The walk starts from Maker Church, with panoramic views over land and sea. The fallow deer grazing among the ancient trees in Mount Edgcumbe's deer park are descended from the herd introduced at the start of the sixteenth century, and the route returns along the eighteenth-century carriageway known as Earls Drive. Make time for a picnic on the open grassland at Minadew Brakes, where you can watch the ships go by.

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.
