A circular walk along the coastline at Tintagel on the north Cornish coast. The cliff top route will give you spectacular views across this section of the Atlantic coast and of course you'll also be able to enjoy the famous local myths and legends. The village and nearby Tintagel Castle are associated with the legends surrounding King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table. The village has, in recent times, become attractive to tourists from many parts of the world and is one of the most-visited places in Britain. The walk follows some steep sections of the coast path with lots of steps and some uneven rocky, slippery surfaces. Some of the fields you pass through will be holding cattle and the cliff edge fields are home to goats, horses and cattle so take care with dogs. There are seven stiles (a mixture of stone and wooden), all of which should be easy for most dogs to negotiate, plus a few gates. There are public toilets available in the car park at the start and also at the castle gift shop half way round. Approximate time 2 hours.
