On a clear day the views are great. On a misty or mizzley day it can be quite eerie. If you get caught in a shower out there there is a little coast guard hut you can shelter in (next to the triangulation point) not...More

Went walking from vault to the Dodman. What amazing views. Beautiful and stunning in day time and yet magical as the sun decending. Walk on from there to hemick and caerhays. About 8 mile round trip.
