Awesome walk with a rewarding view over Sandwood Bay. Recommend clockwise, giving views down on to the beach from the high cliffs. The route does leave the marked path after the first few kilometers and you're left to find your own way through open moorland, can get boggy. The coastal section and views to the sea stack and then the final walk down to the beach all make it worthwhile.

First to Review

This was my first truly long hike at 9.5miles. Although we were expecting to hike the entire way in the rain due to the storm overnight. The hike ended up being beautiful! We came across some fludid bits, but they were easy to cross. The hike was relatively easy the entire way until you get to the sand dunes towards the beach, the hike back up those expect to take your time. All over would love to due this hike again!!
