Visited lighthouse, very interesting museum,which tell the story of the lighthouse, with nice little tea shop attached, thought it was expensive to enter though for what it was at £2.50 per adult. Obviously not accessible to all due to the many steps

It was shut. Opening times only run till September 15th. I was late by 13 days. 🙄 It boasts great views I’m told. Built inland when nothing stood in its way. Must see!
