Borough Head

Short Walk

DISTANCE: 2.0 miles (3.2km) out and back
PUBLIC TRANSPORT: *Puffin Shuttle 400 (*seasonal, hail and ride)
CHARACTER: Coast Path, reasonably easy route. One kissing gate. 

From car park turn left on to Coast Path. It turns on to the road for a short distance, but look for a kissing gate on the right to get off the road again.

This walk follows the Coast Path as far as Borough Head (first kissing gate) and then retraces its steps.

You can return at any point before though, as the views are great along the whole length.

There is a bench just over half way to Borough Head – if only walking to the bench, the walk is 1.25 miles (2km) in total.
