Very good for walkers and picnics I regularly go up for the views on a clear day you can see for miles can get a bit windy at times hence the whistling tree for that makes the sounds

We took our 5year old Grandson to see this fantastic sculpture he was so excited as the wind was blowing and the sounds were amazing. It really is worth a visit.

Lovely walks around the singing ringing tree and fabulous views! The tree itself is okay with an interesting and quite eerie "sing and ring"!!

Singing ringing is a kind use of words to describe to noise. It is impressive as are the views. For some reason my wife and I thought it would be bigger. Worth a visit as there are no costs involved. Public art ???? Worth a...More

Seems like others have given very helpful advice. Not that it was the question but it gets very cold and windy in winter so dress up even for the short walk from the car park
