My husband and I parked in the car park with the full intention of paying the entrance fee to the lighthouse. As I was entering the building I looked up and took a photo of the lighthouse and as I did this a woman came out and stood over me in an aggressive way and demanded to know if I was coming in and if not I was not to take photographs. I said of course I was coming in but was waiting for my husband. She said “where is your husband” in the same aggressive tone. I pointed to him and said just there. Even though she spoke to me in this manner we still wanted to visit the lighthouse and I got the money out and stood by the till to purchase two tickets. The woman had in the meantime run outside to get a man who had been sitting outside in a car to come in and he approached my husband to say “you have to leave your bag with us or you can’t come in”. At this time we still wanted to visit as it was the last day before it closed for the winter and we thought we could put the bag in the car rather than leave it in reception as it was full of expensive camera equipment. As we turned to go back to the car the man said in a nasty manner “good riddance”. We did not stay around to visit. If these people are always in charge of the lighthouse I cannot see that it will stay in business for long.
