There is a railing down part of the steps & well worth the effort. It had been raining so slippery. The rough sea made it even more interesting.

An amazing accidental find! We had great weather, but the views and atmosphere were amazing. Really interesting and unique. Saw choughs too - and a lovely stroll along the cliffs.

This is a nice and unusual place to see. However be aware that the steps are very steep to get down to it although you can see it from the cliffs. There is a hand rail to go down to it.

A tiny little chapel built into the cliff. There are numerous steps down to the chapel and a narrow path (not suitable for all). Enter through a small doorway into the chapel and walk outside onto the rock and look behind you - it is...More

The fishermans chapel is an amazing place. Built at the bottom of a cliff tbe steps down can be a little treacherous, but there is a hand rail to assist you. Once there, the little chapel is very haunting, and contains an energy which makes...More

I did visit on a Saturday, no problems at all. From the firing range's published schedule it would seem they don't do firing practice on weekends. It was very well worth the visit.
