Especially if the weather is good. Very scenic - very pretty and an enjoyable but not too difficult walk.
The walk is wonderful. The approach to the Knab was a little difficult for my dad, but he made it. We walked past a cemetery by the sea. And then to the Knab. Fabulous! You must read the plaque to learn the story of the Shetland pony races to the Knab. And a poor fellow who raced right off of... More
It was a fresh but bright sunny morning when we arrived but, as with everywhere else, coastal, at that latitude the fog rolls in quickly and the weather can become a blizzard.
