This morning we decide to take a coastal hike on the Trebarwith Strand over the Treligga cliffs to Tintagel Castle which is the alleged birthplace of King Arthur. The Trebarwith Strand is part of the 630 mile South West Coast Path. The hike was quite long and strenuous with many steep switchbacks up and down over the cliffs. We did not have any walking sticks and had to hold on to each other to keep from falling at times. As you will see from the pictures we had about three hours of majestic scenery.
On arrival to the ruins of Tintagel Castle we found it over run with senior citizen tourists and many school children on field trips. We aborted as soon as able and headed one mile uphill to Tintagel village for something to eat. We found the village to be much the same crowds as the castle so we had drinks at a bar while waiting for a taxi to return us home. Next time we will listen to our host who told us that Tintagel was quite tawdry.
