I've taken the puffin bus out to the lighthouse on two occasions, on the first occasion the driver was a man and on the second a lady. Both drivers were friendly and courteous and made the journey interesting and humourous. The return journey costs £5, it's about 4 miles each way and is on rough single track so speed seldom exceeds 15 mph which is just as well. I wouldn't particularly want to make this journey by bicycle unless it had low gears as there are some quite steep hills. The visit to the RSPB centre at the lighthouse is interesting, the children saw some puffins and literally thousands of birds nesting on the vertical cliffs. Also saw some seals down at the harbour. RSPB staff are very knowledgeable and they have volunteers from several countries who allow you the free use of decent binoculars for watching the thousands of birds and set up telescopes trained on particular birds. On the continent beauty spots like this would be much more commercialised and there would usually be an admission charge.Toilets facilities were spotless and free. Nice little beaches.
