Not far to walk from the roadside, but best in decent weather as it it quite remote. Lovely sound experience if the wind is blowing. Nice views over the surrounding landscape. Worth a look.

A little bit out of the way. To get the full effect of the sound you have to go on a windy day. Get wrapped up warm. No good if you are bad on your feet because of the walk. But there is a path,...More
