We love this walk. It is fairly easy though you can have the option of coming along the beach for more of a challenge. I always reccomend having a coffee at Rae's along the way if you are coming from the main beacn

A pleasant walk , you can do a little or as much as you like, to view the scenery and watch whales. Cafes along the way and at the Lighthouse itself. Steps involved.
