Truly worth driving up. We had a lovely piece of Apple Pie at the top; sat outside and talked to Odie (the resident sea gull!). He loves being hand fed!

If you're driving, you'll be speechless at the breath-taking scenery. A must see - bring a picnic, find some shelter (from the sun:) )and be amazed.
