Must admit I was a bit wary of doing a precipice Walk but it’s not as scary as it sounds. You do most of the climbing up in the car getting to the car park. The walk is circular , over uneven ground with some...More

A good 2 hour walk which is flat and easy going and recommended for those who would find walking up the mountains a challenge. Great views of the area and a fun walk.

About 3-4 miles round, straightforward path but quite uneven so good shoes recommended. The views are spectacular, this is a must-do walk in the area, and pretty flat for the most part.

This is a great walk that children can manage well, however as other reviews have said, very steep drops for about half of the walk so you need to watch your children closely or better hold their hand. We loved the views and it’s quite...More

There’s very little up and down in this walk, it’s mostly on the flat - but must be one of the most stunning and picturesque flat walks in the country, due to the amazing elevation of the path, and the fabulous views it offers. If...More
