The end of a grand adventure and - for about 5 years - a serious logistical challenge. A really good walk around a corner of north Devon (most of it visited before) and a fine finish, even if a bit of anti-climax in not knowing exactly where the final point was! (Wherever I had lost the real path on the way into Ilfracombe a couple of years back, somewhere on the moors west of the Torrs). But much better here than on the flatter inlands that had made up the other walks I'd left to the end. Continued on the good path around Morte Point in the sun.

In the spirit of revisiting some of the many highlights, a quick start with a sunset walk back around Baggy Point.
