Portloe to Portholland

This is a short hike of just over 2 miles, but quite tough, due to its up and down nature and slimy surface when wet. 
Starting at Portloe, a quintissential tiny Cornish fishing village, once renowned as a base for smuggling French brandy, we walked the coast path to Portholland and then took the easier, but longer route back to Portloe via the narrow country lanes.

The scenery was attractive, if not dramatic, with good views of the approach to Dodman Point, and looking back to Falmouth Bay.
