St Michael’s Way

St Michael’s Way is the only pilgrimage route in Britain that is part of the European Cultural Route and it connects five churches, four holy wells, two hillforts and much more. The route was used by pilgrims and missionaries travelling from Ireland and Wales to Santiago Compostela in Spain.

The route begins at St Uny’s Church, Lelant and follows the South West Coast Path through Carbis Bay before turning inland and going up towards Trencom Hill. The path then drops into the Red River valley and to Ludgvan. From here the route passes through farmland and to the coast at Mount’s Bay before reaching St Michael’s Mount.

The walk is signposted and waymarked in both directions, making It easy to follow.

Enjoy a stunning hike along this former pilgrimage route…
