A high headland with a bird’s-eye view of the coast for a long way in both directions, Rame Head has long been a lookout point. The Coastguard have an office and viewing point here and welcome interested visitors.
Celtic warriors built a rampart across the neck of the headland to defend it from possible attack, and medieval monks kept a light burning here to warn sailors of the rocks after St German established their chapel in the Dark Ages.
This is a short loop around the headland, which is a great place for bird-spotting, especially in autumn, when hobbies, merlins, peregrines, hen and marsh harriers and short-eared owls have all been seen passing through.
On a day with good visibility you should be able to see Eddystone lighthouse.
