  • Such a beautiful place! When we visited it was very quiet with relatively few visitors. Scenic walk down from a small car park through a wooded valley until you reach a pebble beach. Offerings & home made crosses are still left by many who come & there are still one more two original carvings faintly visible on the rock walls near the entrance on the right hand side. A lovely peaceful place to sit & meditate, or just spend some time away from it all.
  • Really nice 2 mile round walk to see the cave. Very pebbly beach but make sure you look out at sea for the seals. Very interesting place.
