Coastal Walk to Borth
From the top of Constitution Hill runs a well-trafficked path all the way through Clarach to the coastal resort of Borth.
The coastal path runs for 8 km right along the coast and makes for a very pleasant walk, if you don't mind one or two hills. At the Aberystwyth end, the path starts at the summit of Constitution Hill.
The walk can be completed within two hours. If you're walking in one direction only, you can complete the circuit by taking either the train or number 512 bus between Borth and Aberystwyth.
