What a beautiful place. Breathtaking scenery. The wind was very very strong the day we were there but managed to get some wonderful pictures anyway. The little restaurant was a very nice spot to warm up with a hot drink. We enjoyed this area very much. A must see.

Lighthouse is in good shape. Cute restaurant and gift shop with local products adjacent to the lighthouse. Very friendly people.
