From. Noup Head, along coastal path and then up directly ridge to top. A couple of Bonxies near the top, but they were being kept occupied by a few gulls. Back down by fence to track, avoiding the direct route as field had plenty of cattle.PeterD26/06/2019
A good walk. Jon Glew's 4WD was needed to get to the lighthouse car park, not good for a 2WD. Circumnavigating the lighthouse wall is exciting, then a stroll to Noup Head. Good walking along the cliff edge with spectacular views of geos, cliffs and caves, to head up North Hill from the SW along a grassy/rocky ridge. Down to the inland variant of the cliff path and back to the lighthouse.Gill26/02/2019
