“New signs”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Since my previous review, we have walked this track again. The No dog sign is now replaced by a dogs on lead sign. Therefore, I have given a better score. The track is well maintained and has been upgraded. A stunning place to go on a windy day. The views are stunning, mostly easy walking with steps down to the water that I can manage ( knee replacements)

“good walking”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

The walk out to the lighthouse is a must do in the area. We used to be able to take the dogs, but there is now a sign 'no dogs'
A reasonable level of fitness is needed as there are steps which are quiet steep in places. However, the short walk to a bench overlooking some fabulous scenery is easy ( I have knee replacements) Another walk from the carpark takes you down to a pretty beach, where we do take the dog. Go at low tide only if you want to go all the way to the lighthouse and be very careful of the rocks on the water's edge. A fit, strong friend got into difficulty here.
I would have given a 5 star rating if the dog could go, but do understand that not all dogs are well behaved. The few spoil it for the many.
