From Portreath we walked due west back to our starting point. Although there were a few ups and downs, the route followed the cliff edge fairly closely and was not particularly difficult. The distance was about 8 miles and, because of the terrain, did not feel too onerous. As I said the conditions were very good and the visibility must have been at least 20 miles, giving us some great views of the coastline heading east.
|Good boots, a granola bar and the coastal footpath - 3 of the 4 ingredients of a great day out. The 4th? Who you walk with.|
|More or less the entire walk, from Portreath on the left to Godrevy in the foreground.|
