We went to visit the castle on holy island. Checked the tide times as you can only cross when the tide is out. The drive over is lovely and scenic. Parking was £2.40 for 3 hours. Started the walk through the village, which again is...More

I am unsure about the shuttle bus service as my husband and I travelled by car onto the Island. However, I seem to remember reading that there is a regular shuttle bus service and it runs throughout the week.
