Great views but beware when it's windy as you'll know about it!! The weather wasn't great on our recent trip but has been in the past, you can see the impressive cliffs and the cow in the fields nearby! :)

Stopped by here on one of our scenic drives around the island and it had some very good views and information boards, worth a stop en-route but not a destination in itself.

Having been fortunate to have visited twice once in October and then in April - the air feels so clean and the views - we were very fortunate to have a very clear day even though the bad April storm had just passed.

We didn't visit the Lighthouse itself, we walked around and had a nice view of the coast and the sea.
