A circular walk from Robin Hood's Bay on the North Yorkshire coast. Beginning with a wide easy to follow path, the walk offers a good steady climb opening up magnificent views of the North Sea, the coast and Ravenscar. The more strenuous return leg along the cliff tops eventually drops into historic Robin Hood's Bay with its attractions, pubs and cafes. There's plenty of opportunity for your dog to be let off the lead safely and they are allowed on this beach all year round too. The outward leg is mainly on the track bed of the former railway line to Scarborough, the return leg along the cliff is more strenuous and includes two steep climbs using steps. There are some quiet roads to cross and the final section in Robin Hood's Bay can be busy at holiday times or weekends. There are no stiles to negotiate but you will need to use several flights of steps. Including the beach, much of this walk allows your dog a great deal of freedom to have a run and a good sniff around. Dogs are allowed all year on this beach, but please clean up. Allow 3 hours.

good walk this one , do the cinder track section first if you don't want to do the very steep climbs up hill when you get to Scarborough Road, look out for the Peacock farm as well :)

First half along the coast is stunning. Second part is just a long gravel track which becomes quite boring although perfect for cyclists.
