We caught the boat over as the tide was high GBP2 each way - a bit steep. There are 2 shops to look at plus a cafe and restaurant.
It is a long steep - very rocky - climb up to the castle but definitely worth it. Wonderful views from the top and staff very friendly and informative. No dogs allowed in the castle. It is well worth a visit.

This is a must see attraction if based in the area. There is a car park just outside, where you can park for £2 all day and the proceeds go to charity. This was a breath of fresh air, as we thought the council car parks were over priced.
The views are excellent and the walk across the causeway was entertaining. We didn't go into the castle but had a very pleasant stroll around the harbour. We saw a jelly fish in the sea.
We were lucky the weather was good, so sat and had some chips whilst enjoying the views. The village is also worth a wander. Lots of places to drink and eat.
Would recommend.

Absolutely loved this visit. Beautiful location with stunning views. Very easy self guided tour but definitely worth chatting with the guides in the rooms who share extra insights and stories. It has intimate rooms and a beautiful Church. Like previous reviewers I recommend decent shoes and if you are lucky enough like us to arrive on a sunny day you will not be disappointed - enjoy! !

loved walking along the causeway from the mainland - beautiful views and there is something magical about walking along a causeway that is only accessible during low tide. The climb up to the top of the hill to the castle required a little stamina and shoes that had a non slippery sole. Views from the Mount were brilliant.Would do it again in a flash.
