&= nbsp; 290 miles from London and 870 miles from John O' Groats, Lands End is reknowned for its rugged windswept cliffs and rocky coastline. It is here that Cornwalls granite backbone disappears into the Atlantic Ocean only to re-emerge some 28 miles away= as the Isles of  Scilly; just visible on a clear day. Legends p= ersist of the mythical ’Lost Land of Lyonesse= 217; that is said to lie submerged here! Large numbers of gulls, cormorants and other sea birds nest here during the springtime and grey seals frequent the= tiny coves and inlets - some of the more inaccessible caves providing established breeding grounds. Dolphins too are regularly sighted during the summer mont= hs lured in by the warm coastal waters. The Longships Lighthouse can be seen a mile and a half offshore and the Wolf Rock Lightho= use stands seven and a half miles to the south - both testify to the notoriously dangerous waters around  Lands End  in what is now one of  the worlds busiest   shipping  lanes.
