The whole of this peninsula in Scotland is an adventure and this is no exception. Single track roads everywhere, which is common here and on the islands, stunning scenery on the way, highland cattle just asking to have a picture taken and when you arrive the stunning scenery continues. On our visit the weather was fantastic, an easterly wind and wall to wall sunshine. The tide was out which meant we could get right down to the waters edge and boy was it a long way up to the lighthouse I could just imagine where we were standing being about ten meters under water at high tide too, it was so impressive and I bets it's even more so in a westerly gale! Anyway decided not to climb the lighthouse so saved £6 but it would have been worth it. Walked around to the giant air fog horn, very impressive. Plenty of parking either up at the lighthouse or slightly lower down by the gift shop and cafe (this is where you buy your tickets for the lighthouse by the way.) enjoyed a nice coffee here with a piece of rocky road cake. Well worth the driving effort to get to the lighthouse, you won't be disappointed.
