We only looked at the building from the outside, but it makes a a wonderful photo op when used as a backdrop to the surrounding nature. Its while walls also make a striking contrast to the sea below. Worth seeing.

It’s worth the slight detour from the cliff path to visit the tower. Manned by very friendly and knowledgeable staff the tower provides lots of information about the wildlife you can expect to see during your visit. Nest cams are set up to watch the chicks and parent birds close up. High power binoculars on tripods are set up for you to use if you haven’t brought your own or they are less powerful.

Go sea watching from here, birds soaring, calling, and riding the waves (small one whilst we were there) Watch the boats go by too, fishing vessels and tourist boats
