Getting around
A car is essential, there is no public transport and the one local taxi firm is a one woman band, so must be booked in advance and is expensive. The roads are quiet and it's a pleasure to drive, so the coast, although an hour away, is an easy hours drive. There is also lots to do much closer to home.
