St Nectans Glen is in the valley of the Trevillet River and is most famous for the waterfall known as St Nectan's Kieve. A public footpath passes through the Glen and passes beside St Nectan's Hermitage from which there is access to the waterfall (there is an admission charge).

We've created two circular walks which pass through St Nectan's Glen, both from the car park at Bossiney. The shorter walk also includes the sandy cove of Bossiney Haven and labyrinthine carvings in Rocky Valley. The longer walk follows the Trevillet River further up the valley from St Nectan's Glen and then crosses to Condolden Barrow where a Celtic king of Cornwall is thought to have been buried.
