  1. Both walks are well worth the effort.But you do need stout walking shoes or boots, and trousers for the “Old mine” climb as your legs can take a beating from many thorny plants on route! Beautiful views, and interesting flora and fauna, so make sure you have a camera with you. Look out, espescially for wild orchids, wild boar, and many other unusual sights!!!

      Getting past the group of goats occupying one corner of the track was quite daunting!
      Needs someone to go up with secateurs for those bushes – the goats are obviously not doing a good job.
