Overview
More
A 4.6 mile walk on the South West Coast Path travelling high around the mouth of the Dart Estuary, giving fine views over the 600 year old castles. Passing through woodland dedicated to the memory of a local hero and returning via the Daymark tower, the route visits the extensive remains of the WW2 Brownstone Battery, built to prevent enemy beach landings to the east.

As a not-so-young, slightly lazy lady I found this walk challenging, but oh so well worth it. We completed the walk from the NT car park near the Daymark. As most of it follows the coastal path, and the coast here is very hilly, the...More

We found this walk to be very interesting, with lovely views. There are some small hills involved, but nothing too steep.

If you want a nice leisurely walk then park in Briwnstone car park and walk about a mile out to the Daymark. The views of the sea and countryside are spectacular. I highly recommend it.

The walk from Kingwear along the coast path is challenging but well worth the effort. The views are spectacular.

There is a map and walk description on the National Trust Walks website. I wanted to paste the link here for you, but this site doesn't allow that.
