A Circular Walk from Botallack

9.7 Miles

 

 

A Walk Visiting Historic Ancient Sites and glimpsing Cornwall’s Mining Heritage

 

 This circular walk starts from the car park next to the National Trust Count House in a stunning cliff top setting at Botallack. It follows Footpaths,  Bridleways and quiet lanes and joins together a number of ancient sites including Tregeseal Stone Circle, Chun Quoit and the Iron Age Hill Fort of Chun Castle, before heading back towards the coast to the Hamlet of Morvah and its pretty Church.

 

It then returns along the coast path offering walkers a glimpse of Cornwall’s Mining Heritage. The route enjoys many vantage points from which you can take in the panoramic views.

 

The walk crosses open moor land and sections of the coast path, has a number of stiles and is steep in places so requires a reasonable level of fitness to complete. The route is approximately 10miles long. There are toilets available during opening hours at the National trust exhibition at the Count House at the start of the walk and also at Geevor Mine.

 

The route gives some good opportunities to stop for refreshments, including the Queens Arms in Botallack,  the School House Gallery in Morvah and the Cafe at Geevor Mine.
