Fancy a stroll....The Roseland is fantastic for walkers of all abilities.
There are plenty of walks to do on the peninsula whether you desire coastal scenery, a woodland stroll or want to get lost amongst the creeks and rivers there is something for everyone. Generally you cant go wrong by following the coast path in either direction however there are some stunning less obvious routes, here are some of our favourites.
Trip to Towan beach - 4 miles - difficulty moderate
Starting at the Plume of Feathers Pub at the centre of Portscatho head in the direction of the harbour. Keep going till you reach the end of the village and after a sharp right turn you will arrive on the SW Coast path, which is situated next to a beautiful cliff garden. From here its easy, follow the path and the yellow acorn signs until the next large sandy beach, Towan.
There are two return route options the first is the way you came the second is cross country through the Rosteague estate.

Stroll to the Coastguard Lookout - 1.5 miles - difficulty easy
Starting at the centre of portscatho or the pubs main entrance take a left onto North Parade head past the galleries across the junction and pass the harbour club on the right. Continue along the road which narrows at the edge of the village into the SW Coast Path. Follow this route through the small area of woodland and out on to the cliffs. From here you can see the lookout station on the headland on the other side of Porthcurnick beach. A great little walk to get a great perspective of Portscatho and the whole bay. Ideal if you are wanting lunch at the hidden hut or a picnic on the beach. For those more adventurous the coast path can be followed on to Pendower beach by passing the Coastguard station and sticking to the south west coast path.
