Leaving the mines and red soil of Botallack, we were soon approaching Cape Cornwall, the path a lot easier than yesterday, and headed on through the Cot Valley towards Sennen.
Cot Valley - Port Nanven
Porth Nanven has the remains of tin streaming works and is an excellent example of a fossilised beach. From here we rounded the headland with views of the Longships lighthouse, and numerous mine shafts that have been capped with circular walls.
The cliff path had one or two steep twists which were a real scramble, but the majority of the path had been easy walking. This was one of Enid's favourite places, and we stopped in a sheltered spot at Aire Point to eat some lunch.
We stopped for a latte at a cafe that overlooks Whitesand Bay and discussed what to do next! The path today had been fairly easy, and it wasn't far to Land's End, so, as we walked on, we decided to pick up our pace a little and head on round to Porthcurno - giving the tourist attraction aspect of Land's End a miss.
The path took us on past Gwennap head with its daymarks... if the red cone hides the black and white daymark you're too late - your boat is on the rocks of The Runnel Stone!
The path takes you a tiny village of Pothgwarra with its slipway, tunnel and Cornish cottages.
