Hiking the Cornish Coast

Through the summer 2020, I hiked around the incredibly beautiful coast of Cornwall, following the South West Coastal Path.

Katrina was with me every step of the way. I dedicate every mile completed, every butterfly, every cooling breeze, every mushroom, every clump of moss, every river crossing, every stunning view, the joy, the pain and the experience to the love of my life.

The key stats:

* Distance: 320 miles / 516km

* Ascent: 16,181m or 53,087 feet

* Total time on the trail: 128 hours over 20 separate days

Between Boscastle and Tintagel

Approaching Mawgan Porth; Spectacular Watergate Beach; Fistral Beach; Zig-zagging around Pentire – OS Maps App is awesome!

  1. Looks a fantastic walk, I had hoped to do it this summer but Covid prevented that. I did managed to walk the path around Newquay and Watergate though, got caught up in storm Alex.
    Did you camp, wild camp?


  2. Dear Howard, so moved seeing you following the arrows for your precious Katrina. Thankyou so much for keeping us – who so enjoyed her blogs – inspired to get out in our wonderful great outdoors. Katrina would have loved that you’re doing this.
    With best wishes, Liz B


  3. Thank you for this. Many of us went on adventures with Kat. Someday a collection would be something I would like to give my grandaughters. Thank you …. Willy



  4. Thank you so much Howard, l’m reading Raynor Winns book The Salt Path and you are both inspiring me to do this walk. Kats blog inspired me to do the Camino Portuges.
    Wishing you all the very that life can bring.
