This is an excellent and varied walk. Unfortunately much in the landscape has changed since the original instructions were written. At the start we could not find Lewis Terrace, suffice it to say that it is one terrace up from the top of the carpark but there was no name visible. At waymark 2 there is no signpost but there is a somewhat misleading signpost a little lower down - ignore the sign pointing to a descending path. Following the coast path is very straightforward and there is now a signposted diversion to avoid the frightening bit along the cliff edge. The scenes at waypoints 3 and 4 have changed and the path up the side of the valley from waypoint 5 has been the subject of much recent work and realignment. The bridge at waypoint 6 has been replaced and there are now a number of other bridges over the streams and it is possible to walk in a complete circle round the waterfalls rejoining the original path before waypoint 6. At, or very near, waypoint 6 there is a signpost to Byrlip indicating the path to follow and a second signpost a little way up this path is that referred to at waypoint 10. This is a rewarding walk but a good look at the map is needed to avoid confusion once leaving the coast path. Such was the profusion of flora and fauna that it took us just over five hours to complete.

Absolutely beautiful walk. Me and my wife chose a stunning day, plenty of sunshine and a nice sea breeze. This walk has plenty of variety fron walking along the coastal path which has one scary bit where the path narrows and you are walking on the cliff edge (but not for long) to the second half where you walk inland through forest and see the water falls. Highly recomended, will do this walk again when I am next down that way.

My family walked this on Boxing Day 2004. It was a beautiful, bright, crisp day which did justice to the fantastic views along the way. The walk was just lovely with plenty of variety! Our Labrador enjoyed it too and managed all of the stiles with ease, but we did take the precaution of putting him on the lead along some of the coastal path in case he decided to jump off the cliffs!
