This is one of the most stunning and atmospheric places you can visit, full of history and echoes of the past. It also provides anyone visiting with one of the best workouts going, with over 400 stone steps down to the footbridge over to Ynys Lawd ... which of course means over 400 back up! The cliffs form part of... More

Well worth both the journey and then the walk. A haven for nature lovers ornithologists and those just after stunning views. Currently the lighthouse is having work done so that part was not open but it was still an amazing experience

We had a lovely walk along the cliff path, breathtaking scenery and saw some rare birds. The people in the rspb shop were very friendly and informative, and the food was lovely.
