Our very own Prime Minister Mr David Cameron, Comedienne Catherine Tate, T.V favorite Dawn French and music artists Morrissey and Will Young have all frequented Portloe village.

First trip to Botallack, was in a bit of a rush since I wasn't sure exactly where they where and ended up parking in the village a little distance away. Not only that I wanted to get down to Cape Cornwall for the sunset so after grabbing a few shots I virtually ran back to the car!
