We climbed to the top with our dog and found the climb manageable and enjoyable. The views from the top are fantastic - out to the coast, the glens and across farmland. We found the descent tricky, especially with a dog on a lead, and...More

Great day, nice walk that the 3 year old daughter could handle, only downside was the toilets at the bottom, lights didn't work, no soap, and generally a mess.

Parking and climb are free. Opens 24/7. Take care about proper footwear, it is extremely slippery, when wet. Not suitable for little kids (under 8-9) as there is no paved or pre made trail up to the pinnacle.
