With the perfect excuse of a friend's wedding, Martha and I were down near to St Just at the weekend. We visited the Botallack Count House (where the miners used to collect their pay) and then walked on the coast path West towards Cape Cornwall.
It was a windy walk and the seas were wild. The heather provided a stunning purple landscape in every direction.
Engine houses perched on the edge of the cliffs, Iron Age castle ruins and Bronze Age cairns can be found all the way along the route.
We decided to turn around when Cape Cornwall came into view and then took the lower path to bring us back round.
(Time taken - Approximately 1 hour. Difficulty - Somewhere in the middle)
We can highly recommend this walk which is beautiful and interesting, whatever the weather.
