Fantastic scenery

Very nice walk. Great views, and not a difficult walk. It ends at a lovely little beach. Benches to rest on along the way.

Well worth a visit, really beautiful cliff walk. Lots of wildlife to be seen, especially birds! Fabulous scenery. Best of all, it's free!

A slow walk along the cliff tops after a good lunch was just what we needed and we weren't disappointed. Great views and a good opportunity to feel the wind in your hair. Some good bird life too.

You really need to be fit to attempt this walk much better on a summers day and keep well back from cliff edge!

It's a really really pretty place and a lovely walk. Dangerous, too! After you walk for a while you get a choice.

Great long walk with amazing views. Friendly walkers taking long walks to clear the cobwebs as it can be gusty. Wrap up well even on warm days as walkway is very exposed. Pity it isn't a circular route so you need to trek back, but minor if even irrelevant complaint.

This is a nice walk but it's not looped or you have to go back over the road. Going back the same way is always a bit boring I find. There should be a way to go back through the fields

Nothing fancy here. Rough path with puddles in patches. Gets you away from everything. Very relaxing with a wonderful view of the coastline. Safe as its not on the cliff edge. Can go off the path and take a trip down closer to the sea. Found myself wondering what's around the next corner. Seats along the path to sit and... More
