The tower is very old and you are not allowed to climb it any more. The elevatred base offers good views and the surrounding garden is very nice as well. Would benefit from a bit of restoration.

Well on the basis the island does not have a lot to do they pull out the stops with a viewing tower! Yes the view is pretty good and gives you a good understanding of the layout of the village and Island.

Beware- the steps are VERY difficult but totally worth it. There is usually a short line, don't give up. The view is the best way to understand life on the village

This is absolutely no big deal...it's a viewing platform. There's a bar nearby with fresh, cold Blue Seal ice cream - head there.
