There's a fair amount of walking involved which shouldn't surprise anyone. The tickets were a bit on the expensive side given how little there was to see.

Did this walk with my mum and my dog. Beautiful scenery, not too difficult. Would recommend keeping your dog on a lead and keeping them close though as you can be near to the cliff edge at times.

Yes it is but once you start to walk you will want to carry on. Wear a comfortable pair of shoes as some of the ground is not level.
