Description
Waypoints (3)

Parts of the first section are quite rocky and can be unstable to walk on. However once past that, it opens up into nice wide paths that are easy to walk on. Suitable for all ages and the scenery is beautiful. Lots of other paths to go down if you wish to make the walk longer. £3 parking and a fairly small lot.

Heads up, £3 parking and the car park isn’t that big. Not hard trail to cover, walked round anti clockwise. Parts of the first section are quite rocky and can be unstable to walk on. However once past that, it opens up into nice wide paths that are easy to walk on. Suitable for all ages and the scenery is beautiful. Could see this trail becoming a family favourite. Lots of other paths to go down if you wish to make the walk longer. There are others trails next to the car park but haven’t tried them yet.
