Undulating paths on rough and demanding terrain make todays walk a strenuous one, but all worthwhile for the stunning views across the sea. Zennor is a small village which is a 10-15 minute walk inland from the coast, the local pub will be a welcoming sight after the walk today.  The local museum is worth a visit which is dedicated to Cornish life from Prehistoric times.

If continuing on to Pendeen Watch, do not take the diversion off the Path to Zennor.
