This is a beautiful area but very little to do if it is raining and the day we were there we stopped for the limited view and then moved on.

We visited the old lighthouse on a tour around the south of peninsula, WW2 buffs will enjoy seeing the D-day weather forecast memorial plaque. Don't miss the spiral stone sculpture at Falmore and the fantastic white sand beach at Glosh if you're in the area.

Steeped in history, this area is surprisingly linked to many historical events...but I'll let you figure them out yourself!! Lovely walks and quiet beaches... worth a visit!

My ancestors came from the area- very rugged and beautiful, but I can see why life as a subsistence farmer was so difficult here!

The whole area is really stunning views , well worth the drive! Most little roads loop back to the main road so one can't really get lost. Take a packed lunch as there are many places to stop and walk round.
