The views are magnificent; the organisation thorough; transport to the island easy. This is the fifth time we have visited the Sculpture on the Gulf exhibition over ten years and each time we are blown away. (Not literally!) 2km walk over undulating terrain. Would recommend...More

Not open again until next year. That’s a shame. We would have liked to have gone. Check their website for dates.

We have done the Headland Sculpture walk since it was started and have noticed the improvements over the years. This year however the displays/artwork somehow did not excite as much as in previous years. There was also a huge crowd so it was difficult to...More
