Sennen Cove to Land's End

Having been warned that Land's End This link opens in a new window is over-touristified we were advised to head to Sennen Cove This link opens in a new window and walk the coast route to Land's End. Sure enough Sennen Cove is a quaint fishing village with a reasonable amount of tourist impregnation, however the walk over the cliffs to Land's End is quite stunning. En route we spotted the wreck of HMS Mulheim This link opens in a new window which ran aground on the cliffs in 2003. The scenery is spectacular for the 30-min walk over to Land's End.

St Michael's Mount

St Michael's Mount This link opens in a new window is that place we've all seen in our childhood where you have a castle sited on an island which is only reachable at certain times of day when the tide's out. Well had the weather been better I might have gotten some better pictures, but for now here are a couple of images - one of them obviously a stylized HDR image.
