We visited in October. The lighthouse was the only sign of life other than bird and animal life (lambs). We were the only ones there. We didn't venture too close to the cliffs as the wind was at our backs and forceful. Warning signs are...More
You park at the lighthouse and can walk either way - both are equally stunning! There is no path as such, you just wander along the cliff side and take in the scenery. It is so grand it makes you feel very small!
