Lovely walk and views, a few things to see and a chance to look out the bay and see marine life. Lots of wildflower like sea thift and red valerian. A good walk on the path is towards landscove and beyond.

Lovely views of Torbay from this beautiful tranquil beauty spot. Great for kids to run of steam. Or a quiet leisurely stroll. Suitable for dogs but take care near cliff edges dogs probably need to be on a lead if prone to running about.

An interesting fort with defences only towards the land and none by the coast. The visitor centre is interesting but lacks a little history

The children didn't fancy a long walk but couldn't get them to leave when it was time to head back! Incredible views. Loved every minute of it.

Even on a very windy afternoon, what a glorious place to walk, we were well wrapped up. The seagulls were swooping and diving in the wind they seemed to be enjoying them selves as much as we were !!
