Take off and landing: There are two dedicated takeoff areas, one at the pimple and one at the top of the hill near the trig point. Use only these areas for taking off and top landing. Pilots must not take off or land on the raised beach(the grassy plateau at the base of the hill); it is an area of Special Scientific Interest. Taking off or landing on the cliffs is not permitted. The cliffs can be flown by taking off and landing on the pimple. Bottom landing can be anywhere on the beach but pilots must be aware of the public when coming in to land. Use only the recognised footpaths when returning from the beach to the hilltop.
Full details are on the SWWSC website.
Mick Morris has sent these shots of the 'new' Rhossili landing option at Tankeylake Moor. This is an unofficial landing site and is probably only a HG option due to the distance from the main ridge (but don't let that stop you trying on a PG!).
