The lighthouse is small and closed to the public but you can walk up to it on the bridge. There is also a great museum in what was the keepers house. Nearby is a monument to local fisherman that have been lost at sea.

The Lighthouse area has a wonderful light, connected via the long wooden runway to the Keeper’s House. It has been restored and now has a nice gift shop and lighthouse information. There are lovely gardens to see. It is definitely worth a drive here.

Easy light house to get too and look around for 10-15 minutes. Stunning coastline. So rugged. The museum was closed when we dropped in but so worth it. Great pictures.

This lighthouse is in a beautiful spot and so photographic! We went in April so it was windswept but very atmospheric.The little museum wan't open when we were there which was a shame. Great place to have a picnic and look at the view.
