A circular walk between two Iron Age enclosures thought to have been built by the Celtic Dumnonii tribe who inhabited the South West over 2000 years ago. Both sites are on high ground with terrific views over coast and countryside. In summer the high cliffs are fringed with wildflowers and the ancient green lanes used on the inland part of the walk are scented by the banks of honeysuckle tumbling over the hedges. Butterflies linger in the flowers, and skylarks and meadow pipits trill high overhead. A good walk in autumn too, when you may spot migratory seabirds passing offshore on their way west. Look out for skuas, terns and Manx shearwaters.
