Pleinmont headland sits in Torteval parish and is one of the highest points on the island. The view looks out across to Les Hanois lighthouse, and paths lead down Fort Pezeries and, from there, around to Portelet where Ollie and, previously, Remus, berthed the Huffin’ Puffin.
The height and unobstructed views from the headland made it an obvious position for a defensive tower during the Second World War (see above), which is now open to the public on a weekly basis. In book 1, Dead in the Water, it is the start point for a cliff walk that Simon Langlois is sent to report on.
There are plenty of places to sit and look out to sea on the headland and it is one of the best places from which to watch the sunset each evening (see below).
Being positioned so close to Portelet, the headland marks a significant nautical feature for Remus Carey. He takes Marc Renouf around it when the two of them motor out to Havelet Bay, close to the outdoor bathing pools in St Peter Port. It is also the point from which a member of the Consortium watches Remus passing on his way to the rendezvous in Sark.
