West Side Coastal Path


Map & Directions

Public Transport Directions

It is never far from a road end, so it can be easily cut short in poor weather, or split into shorter walks which can be easily fitted into a day of sightseeing. The West Side Circular bus route passes along the main road in both directions with frequent services around school times so you can easily get back to the start. Better still, park up first and take the bus to the start removing any doubt about missing a bus later in the day. Check the current timetables on line or pick up a copy at a local tourist information office.
