Staff were very friendly, explaining things about the area. The museum was informative, and good photos. We were unable to go into the lighthouse - missed the last tour. Walked around the grounds only. The cafe was closed.

We loved the coastal scenery and found the lighthouse tour very entertaining especially when reflecting on how hard the lives of the lighthouse keepers and staff were.
