Coast path walk in either direction, demanding but very rewarding with some fabulous views. I recommend the walk to Bossiney which while challenging is 8 miles return of lovely views.

Walk this section of the coastal path and you will not be disappointed. Lots of breathtaking views and parts can be physically challenging without being over the top.
