The Perimeter is a labour of love: it’s taken 454 days of walking, hundreds of hours of planning and thousands of hours of editing. If you have the means, I’d appreciate your support by buying a print or contributing so I can continue to share the project with you.

  1. The beaches and the colour of the sea are so beautiful up there. Looks like there’s a few more campervans these days…must be fun on single track roads!

  2. Hehe, they will, I’m sure! I learnt to be wary of them when I was motorcycling past one that was in a passing place and they chose that very moment to open their (large) door. Just as well I wasn’t going very fast and could stop in time or they’d have swatted me off my bike! (That was over 40 years ago, when there were a lot less tourists about.)

Whether you have comments on the photos, some knowledge or a personal story on this area you’d like to share, or you’ve spotted a typo or error, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
