Dr Syntax's Head from Maen Castle
Dr Syntax's Head is the most westerly point of the Land's End complex. Dr Syntax was a fictitious schoolmaster in books of the 1830s, and it is thought that the head was named after the shape of his chin. Well, that's what this story says anyway! LinkExternal link

In the distance is/are Longships, a group of rocks about two kilometres from the shore and, despite having a lighthouse, causing many shipwrecks over the years.
