Another enjoyable visit to RSPB reserve. Wardens keen to share knowledge. Plenty of wildlife, although puffins elusive today. Always enjoy walking along cliff top. Don't forget your binoculours.

On a windy or rainy day you can get protection from the weather inside this tower. It is very small so has nothing else to offer I think.

Lovely experience, spotted some rare birds on our first visit with the binoculars provided. Great view of the cliffs and sea.

It's only small but the views are magnificent. You can watch, on a monitor, the cliff nesting birds through specially positioned cameras.

Easily accessible tower, free and with knowledgeable staff to guide your viewing. Binoculars and telescopes to use and a place for children to play for a short time whilst parents/grandparents view the porpoise or Choughs - lovely

A visit to Ellins tower was the reason we joined the R.S.P.B.....the staff there are so friendly and informative, nothing is too much trouble, and they will look up anything for you. The views at South Stack are superb, you must give it a try.

Ellin's Tower is a must for Anglesey visitors. The RSPB have really done a good job here - telescopes and CCTV to enjoy, along with help from the friendliest of staff and volunteers. What a brilliant way to inspire the next generation to enjoy and support our wildlife. Sadly, it would be impossible to give wheelchair access to the tower,... More
