The walk to St Catherine's castle is as much about the ruins as it is about the amazing views from the location. It is at least a half hour walk from the village to Readymoney beach, a great little cove with a sandy beach. From...More
It's a short (but steep) walk out of Fowey and worth it for the beautiful views back to Fowey and Polruan. We had our sandwiches up there and it was peaceful and quiet. The actual castle is small but worth a look to stretch the...More
A small fort rather than a castle. It's a bit of a walk, the steps up from the beach lead to a slightly more difficult climb over quite rough ground. For an easier route go through the village to the start of the Pilgrims Way...More
As the title suggests, the walk to St. Catherine's Castle is an easy one from Fowey. The walk can even be broken by pausing st Readymoney Cove en route (Readymoney Cove is actually worth the walk in it's own right).

No car park - you have to walk from the one above Readymoney; walk down (past Dawn French's house) to the beach & up through the woods out to the promontory. No wheelchair access. Glorious view of Fowey & Polruan... More
No car park - you have to walk from the one above Readymoney; walk down (past Dawn French's house) to the beach & up through the woods out to the promontory. No wheelchair access. Glorious view of Fowey & Polruan on a fine day. (Not today because it's POURING so will be quite slippery).
Hope you enjoy it.
