Lovely views and cafe but not dog friendly. No dog bins in sight. Parking was an issue as well as very. Busy and only a small car park.

A lovely tour and interesting place to visit. Be ready for the many, many steps- but definitely worth a visit if you are on this beautiful island.

we visited here over Easter with friends. The staff were very friendly and happy to answer questions. You can also climb to the top of the lighthouse where the staff give a short talk which was very interesting. Over 1000 steps in total but well worth it! The cafe at the visitor centre well worth a visit too.

We headed here not knowing much about the site and we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. First of all, free parking is always a bonus, so we dropped the car and set off walking around the footpaths along the cliff tops. If you can contain your fear of heights the views are stunning. There is a viewing tower which... More

Absolutely stunning walk down to the lighthouse. Fabulous to be taken on the tour. Amazing history to the place. Steep steps though , really not a place for small children. With 410 steps just to the lighthouse remember that what goes down... Our kids (6 and 8) thought it was great fun. Well worth the money. We got there early... More

Well worth a visit. The RSPB centre do great coffee and cakes. Steep decent and the cliffs are very high. Keep your dog on a lead.
