Morning

The rugged terrain of Tresco’s north end (1) is great for an energetic hike or a trail run. Expect rocky paths and steep climbs, but incredibly rewarding scenery.

After looping around the coast, past two castles, you’ll end up near the sheltered cove of Gimble Porth (2) – the perfect spot to take a breather.

Lunch

The Ruin Beach Café (3) is nearby – recover on its terrace with a glass of something cold. On the menu are deliciously rich crab linguine, fresh, punchy salads and a selection of woodfired pizzas and sharing plates.

Its terrace overlooks Old Grimsby with views out to Blockhouse Castle, and at high tide waves lap just below.
