“Breathtaking site!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2015 NEW

Had a walk around the area and the steep cliffs are to admire. The RSPB staff were helpful. The noisy seabirds nesting,wish I could have stayed longer!

“Beautiful yet wild!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2015

Fantastic views, craggy rocks, vibrant yellow gorse, sheer rocks- quite scary? All overlooking the sea.. It was very windy when we visited so didn't go as far as we had planned. Nice RSPB shop and cafe with hot and cold foods. Well worth a visit, like being "on the edge" of the world. A bit more history on the lighthouse and keepers would be good. Volunteers had a list on blackboard of recent sitings.

“beautiful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2015

fantastic experience, well worth the walk down to the lighthouse and up the steps to the top. They is a short talk at the top about the mechanisms and the history of the lighthouse, and the man was willing to answer any questions. Feel it would be better if there was more about the daily lives of the lighthouse keepers and their families rather that just the lighthouse itself. Well worth a visit.

“Beautiful and Scary At The Same Time :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2015

We couldn't of chosen a worst day for this visit as it was extremely windy and the fog was hiding all the beautiful vistas we wanted to experience. But...I have to say it was a truly enjoyable experience - sometimes a bit scary! Anyone who suffers from fear of heights should keep away however.Friendly staff in the café and also in the tower. We will go back again hopefully on a sunny day!

“It's a must if you go to the Isle of Anglesey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2015

I know that by that time it will be provably close to visits, but the views during the sunset are stunning.
