We took about a hour to walk round and take some photos, but had to leave wife in a near by cafe as no access for a wheelchair user.

Used to ward off pirates, this Tower has an interesting history and worth a look whilst passing by. Great views down the coastline

It's an old tower on the cliffs. Great views of the surrounding areas. I only visited as there was a geocache and a pokeymon gym. Shame it's not actually open to the public.
