Spent a weekend here with a group of friends. Comfortable beds and bedrooms. Sitting room just spacious enough. All amenities covered but if you're looking for to or Internet give it a miss. This is a location to really get away from it all. The walls around the Lighthouse are fantastic and the views spectacular. We got extremely lucky with the weather but I imagine it would be amazing no matter what. Definitely walk to Brideshead beach as we came across a colony of about 20 seals. Very close to the city which is perfect for a handy weekend away. Loved it, despite my legs aching from the endless steps.
