This Lighthouse is hidden away but once you walk round the corner of the road and see it you'll never forget the view! Beautiful!

“Wonderful location and interesting tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

It's on the south side of the Island and the walk to the lighthouse doesn't take too long to complete. Best to check if it's open before making the journey, as with all lighthouses which are open to the public from time to time. The tour itself is interesting and informative, and is operated by volunteers. Recommended.
