Visited this on several occasions last summer & it was always a great occasion. However on my last visit I was told by a rather ignorant member of staff from the national trust that there is now a fee for visiting the site. When I queried why the fee was introduced the response I got back was basically pay the fee or go somewhere else. I was disappointed as my friend & I where out for a run (no wallet) & he was looking forward to seeing the sight.
While I respect the work that the national trust do, especially along the north coast, I fear charging high prices for every single site in the area is driving tourists/guests away from the area. This in turn has a damaging affect on businesses in the area such as hotels, pubs, shops & restaurants. Poor performance by the national trust!
