Walk down the steps to a beautiful little inlet. LOTS of steps and be prepared to walk back up! No handrail and as some steps are wonky it is not recommended for elderly or people who might have difficulty with balance. But if you can...More

Dogs are definitely allowed, I took mine but kept him on the leash as there’s a shear drop and no barriers between the steps and the North Sea below. I think they are open every day unless the local council are doing major maintenance work on them or really bad weather. When I went there was a council worker doing some minor repairs on the lower steps but they were still open to the public.
