Points of Interest/Notes on this walk:
The owners of Tintagel Head suggest the ruined monastery on the island was the location of King Arthur's Camelot. Sadly there is no proof that King Arthur ever visited the area(but no proof that he didn't!)
At Trewethett Mill in Rocky Valley, just to the right of the ruined structure, don't miss the 4000 year old Bronze Age rock carvings that form the shape of a maze.
