"Pembrokeshire Coast National Park" Pembrokeshire Coast National Park by Rachael71

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is one of the most beautiful and dramatic stretches of coastline in the UK. Hundreds of walkers come to the park each year to walk the 186 mile coastal path, while many more tourists come to visit its pretty villages and unspoiled beaches. The area is a haven for birdwatchers too. It is home to the rare chough, which , in the UK, can only be found in Pembrokeshire and Cornwall - look out for a black bird with a bright red beak. You will also see puffins and, if you are lucky, porpoises and seals basking in the sea. History lovers will not be disappointed either, with places of interest ranging from iron age settlements to the beautiful St David's Cathedral. The stones that built Stonehenge came from the Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire. St Elvis came from that area too - St Elvis of Preseli, it has a certain ring to it, don't you think? (I swear I'm not making this up!)

    Can't beat freshly caught mackerel cooked over a camp fire. We sometimes catch too many (in Scotland) and have to find people to give them to. It's a very addictive sport, mackerel fishing!!!!
