We visited the lighthouse so I could face my fear of crossing bridges. Trust me it really tested me but after climbing all those stairs to the very top of the lighthouse I wasn't worried on the way back. The guide was very informative and the views were stunning.

The sun setting over the misty Snowdonia mountains to the left horizon. The Irish... More

I am biased as this is my home town but it is simply stunning and beautiful at any time of the year. The lighthouse itself can be visited for most of the year but if the weather is really bad, the bridge is closed and you can only make it to the bottom of the steps. The trip back up... More
