Gurnard's Head

Cliff Fort


This is a stunning place for the views alone on a beautiful sunny day in June, I'm not sure how I would feel about being here in a howling gale in mid winter though. The perfect place to defend, the cliffs either side of the narrowest point are at least 100 feet in height. It's a bit hard to see but there are the remains of walls and at least one entrance.
It's name in the Cornish language is Ynyal which means desolate.
