This was a fabulous trip! Even though it rained pretty constantly, we saw the most wonderful dolphin display. There were three of them dancing the waters just as majestically as you could ever imagine. An absolute must- go!!!

What a waste of time driving to the lighthouse. We thought it would be open for viewing but it was surrounded by a locked wire fence and dogs were inside the building barking like mad.

The lighthouse is alright... But the scenery steals the show. We sat for an hour watching the seals and gannets and cormorants live their lives.

We decided to drive to the headland to have a brief look at the lighthouse. Parking seemed to be very limited at the time of our visit.
