Stunning setting, great walks, majestic waterfalls. Even a red squirrel. I've marked it down on two scores. One is the facilities. Most of the interactive exhibits weren't working and the displays themselves are tired and neglected. And the cafe was closed (a Sunday in September...More

What a beautiful place. It's a bit of a walk with steep inclines and stairs but it's worth the walk. My 85 year old mom made it no problem. Such a peaceful place with unbeatable beauty. At the top the view was incredible. The three...More
