First time in whitehead. Lovely wee place and very friendly people. Visites the art galery as Well, which was amazing. And the walk along the sea was fantastic and I enjoyed that very much

This really is a lovely walk and we do it as often as we can. Path hugs the seashore and it is never crowded. If you are in the mood for some strenuous exercise you can always take the walk up to the lighthouse. Well...More

This is an amazing therapeutic walk and I would highly recommend it for anyone who needs to not only exercise the body but to exercise the mind. Fabulous on a sunny day but even better on a wet and windy day. The path is closed...More

We parked in the car park and headed off, on the sea front walk, to make the most of a sunny day. It really is a beautiful coast walk, dotted with benches here and there. Also outdoor adult gym equipment mid way. There's a colourful...More

This is a great place for a dander any day. Always sure of a lovely view. Watch out on windy days as you may just get wet with waves crashing...all safe enough and sure it's all part of the fun. If you're feeling energetic then...More

Blackhead path is a great walk. There are various routes along the cliff top or along shore. The walks end at the lighthouse. There currently is a section under lighthouse closed off due to rock falls (but still accessible if your really keen). The shore...More

My husband and I came along this walk on Sunday by accident. The walk is brisk and windy, so wrap up warm. The scenery is breathtaking, and the path has historical sign posts along the way. Part of the path is closed, but you can...More
