Sennen to Lands End Walk
A beautiful section of coast with some unique birdwatching opportunites. It's about a 3 mile circular walk with some moderate climbing along the cliffs. On the way look out for a variety of pretty wildflowers and seabirds including fulmars, kittiwakes and guillemots.
Start the walk from the Sennen Harbour car park next to the lifeboat station. From here you can pick up the coast path heading south west to Maen Cliff and Maen Castle. The Iron Age fort includes a stone rampart, ditch and counterscarp bank built across the neck of the headland, with almost sheer cliffs on two sides and a steep slope on the third.
You continue south to Dr Syntax's Head and then to the most westerly point of England at Land's End. Here you turn inland, passing Trevescan Cliff to pick up a section of the Cornish Way. This will take you back through the countryside to Sennen Cove with more great views from the elevated path.
The little village has a number of pretty cottages and a beautiful long beach which is popular with surfers. There's also a nice beach cafe and a typical Cornish pub for refreshments after your exercise.
You can extend your walking in the area by continuing south along the coast path on the Porthcurno to Lands End Walk.
Heading north will take you past the lovely Whitesand Bay to Cape Cornwall.
You can also pick up the long distance Land's End Trail. The waymarked trail runs for over 300 miles from Avebury in Wiltshire, through Devon and Somerset to Land's End.
