Dinas Head Walk header

Dinas Head Walk

The Dinas Head walk is an excellent, moderately challenging choice with spectacular clifftop views over the sea and across North Pembrokeshire’s beautiful, rugged coastline. The whole circular walk is about 7 miles but, although it tops the northern cliffs at its highest, the progressive gradient is achievable for anyone who is reasonably confident on their feet.

Whichever way you start, from Cwm Yr Eglwys or Pwll Gwaelod, the last half mile is reassuringly flat! Refreshments are available at the Old Sailors pub in Pwll Gwaelod with parking available at either Pwll Gwaelod or Cwm-yr-Eglwys.

Carregwastad Point walk to the rugged landing place of the French forces for the last invasion in 1797. Access is from the sea or from the coastal path only

In 1797 the French Republican “Legion Noir” landed on Caregwastad Point, in what has been the Last Invasion of Britain, only to surrender to a much smaller force including the Pembroke Yeomanry hastily assembled under Lord Cawdor and the much famed Jemima Nichols whose ‘army of women’ may have made all the difference!

Two of the French frigates were captured and one re-commissioned in the Royal Nay as H.M.S. Fishgard, and in 1853 Queen Victoria awarded the Regiment the battle honour “Fishguard”.
