Leaving Salcombe you will take the ferry to East Portlemouth. From here pass Pig’s Nose, Ham Stone and Gammon Point enroute to Prawle Point, meaning “lookout hill”, and enjoy the views from the most southerly point in Devon. Heading on towards Start Point and its Lighthouse, the path then levels out towards the waterside village of Torcross, your stop for the evening.

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
