Climbing Cornwall’s Breathtaking Coastline: Bosigran Photo Diary

Turquoise blue water is not normally associated with the British coastline but then, most people haven’t been to Cornwall! Lucky for me, being a trad climber and a Falmouth university graduate, I have spent a lot of time on some of the most picturesque and untouched stretches of coastline in the south west of England. And basically, I fancied sharing some pictures of this amazing area with you. Even though most of you wont be climbers! However maybe this will tempt you to visit Cornwall. Maybe even give climbing a go or take a walk along the beautiful Bosigran coastline. Disclaimer: both activities are a lot more enjoyable in the sun!

Turquoise blue coastline in Cornwall, England

Bosigran is a large, granite sea cliff located in West Penwith. It is understandably one of my favourite places to climb in Cornwall… look at these views! The mixture of grades here keep all types of trad climber happy. Meanwhile the coastal path makes for an impressive walk. You’re likely to spot seals, dolphins and if you’re lucky, basking sharks in the waters around Bosigran. The abandoned mines dotted along the paths add a suitably Cornish feel!

  1. The place looks stunning! I tried climbing recently but that was a difficult task! Lately my sister fell of a wall and she hurt her leg and now is sentenced to one month in cast and 2 months of rehabilitation – so my mom is freaking out we’re all going to die from climbing 🙂 But I have to try it again. Just to see this view it is worth knowing how to climb. Beautiful pictures!

    1. Oh no, that sucks. Climbing can be dangerous, sounds silly but I do forget that! The view is always stunning though. Glad you like the pictures x

  2. These photographs are all so gorgeous! I’ve only visited Cornwall once, and that was only to Falmouth, and it was in the dead of winter so it really wasn’t all too great. I adore these photographs, and you might have just convinced me to travel back to Cornwall!

    Have a great week!
