This walk leads to the south-west corner of the Island. German fortifications are strung along this particular section of cliffs, two such being L'Angle, a direction-finding tower, and the imposing Batterie Dollmann, a command post. One of the most impressive sights to be seen in Guernsey is to be found on this route, La Table Des Pions, roughly translated as the footman's table, a circular ditch with a flat grassy area in the middle, surrounded by ancient stones. It is an ancient form of picnic table for servants who took part in a late 18th century procession called La Chevauchée. It is also affectionately known locally as 'The Fairy Ring.' On reaching the somewhat gentler west coast, we reach the picturesque Portelet harbour. Here you can find somewhere to rest with a drink or a snack and take in the lovely views.
