The walk and view are an artful experience. Whether you study the whole or focus on the hundreds of details there are colors, textures and movement to study, appreciate and amaze you. The interaction of all the elements will keep your attention at every turn

Lovely walk easy rise to overlook the beaches and coves below. One was full of seals basking in the sun. National Trust car park with cafe and toilets on site. Well worth a visit.
