Went here with family for a trip. The island is well looked after and staff are helpful. The views on the island were lovely and we even seen about 4 seals and lots of wildlife such as bird and butterflies. Well worth a trip.

Very relaxing and quiet location , suburb for seal watching and normally see various sea birds. The two hours you have on the island will fly by.

Sadly not! The paths are very steep in places both up and down. There is also no wheelchair access on the boat or the slip on the island.
