Head of Visit Cornwall, the county's tourist board, Malcolm Bell is walking the South West Coast Path through South East Cornwall this week, as part of the 2016 Coast Path Challenge, in an effort to raise money to help with the cost of protecting the Path.

Malcolm Bell, Visit Cornwall's chief executive, said he was passionate about the South West Coast Path and has pledged to walk just less than 30 miles on October 5, 6, and 9 as part of the challenge event.

The route he is taking as he walks the 'Malcolm Miles' will take him from Rame Head, through Looe, and onto Fowey. Along with his team, he will be stopping at key locations, meeting with tourism businesses which are based on the South West Coast Path in the South East area.

Malcolm Bell is asking local businesses to help raise funds that will go towards the coast of protecting and maintaining the path. He said, "I am taking on this challenge to showcase the wonderful places that people can experience as they walk along the Coast Path. We all need to protect and maintain this unique walking route."

The 2016 Coast Path Challenge can be taken by anyone, and there over 300 people already participating this October. The aim is to break the record for the number of times the Coast Path can be covered in one month. You can sign up and add your own miles to the mileometer and raise funds yourself.

As well as the South West Coast Path, there are lots of other great walking routes to take around our Fowey restaurant and hotel, that take you through the harbour town itself and along the stunning River Fowey. At this time of year, the beautiful autumn colours will make the scenery you see along the way look stunning.
