Start from the remote car park at Stoke for a short, linear 1 mile walk along the coast path. Enjoy dramatic views, and look out for the cirl bunting and Dartford warbler.
Join the old carriage way, Revelstoke Drive, for a hike to the ruins of Gunrow Signal Station, a great picnic spot. The turn back and follow the path that hugs the coast through Netton Down.
A strenuous but rewarding walk round the wilder side of the Yealm estuary, from Gara Point to Noss Mayo, taking in a combination of Victorian history and wildlife along the way.
