This rugged walk explores the moorland and deserted villages west of Kintra en route to a dramatic corner of the coastline with a fine sea-stack. The return keeps high above the sea before a very soggy descent through scrub.


Track initially, then soggy, pathless moorland. Some rough, boggy going on return. Livestock on route, dogs are discouraged and should be kept under tight control.

Public Transport



Parking at entrance to camping area, Kintra. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
