A short there and back walk of 2.6 km (1.6 ml) from the National Trust car park in the pretty village of Bossington to Hurlestone Point along a well marked section of the South West Costal Path.

I would have gone further but the wind was gusting heavily and the path along the side of the cliffs is precarious at the best of times.

This is part of a longer circular walk detailed on the South West Coastal Path site which they describe as a "breathtaking route for the walker who is stout of heart and limb". There is also a less challenging one on the National Trust site.

On the point is an old coastguard lookout which still provides shelter to passing walkers.
