We've visited by boat and by helicopter, and the latter is preferable. The helicopter flight is about 7 minutes. If you go by boat be prepared to feel sick even on the calmest of seas, so if you are a sufferer, take some sea-sick pills. However, the island is well worth a visit. It is possible, if you're a fit walker, to walk from one end to the other, but even if you're not, once you mastered the walk up from the jetty, most of the island is relatively flat. There is a pub with good food, and a few souvenir / confectionery / food shops (well, one actually), a small museum and houses to rent for short stays. We have done that off-season and had a great time.There's lots of bird life, and it is on migration routes so you sometimes get rare visitors. There are also goats and seals.
