Though not for flip-flops, this fairly easy walk offers stunning views of derelict mines, coves and heart-stopping cliffs. A must for any Poldark fan!

Great views and fantastic hiking. Do not attempt if you are not sure footed. Know your limits and keep within them. There is no easy way to get help to you if you suddenly need help.
