We arrived on an early summers evening and sat at the inn overlooking the bay and enjoyed a couple of drinks. The bay is very picturesque with yachts etc bobbing in the waves. Quiet but very quaint. Worth a visit.

This delightful spot is reached by a very twisty and single-track road. It is a small harbour and bay which is well worth seeking out. Great place to have a picnic or let kids paddle in the shallow waters. I noticed some people had been...More
