Large car park near the Towers. Pay and display but not expensive. Toilets and small cafe/information centre. Nice coastal walk or cycle path either way. Lots of birdlife. Best on a sunny day. Pub close by. Narrow road down to site so take care

We found this place by accident we were just driving around viewing the coast and found this lovely spot. We walked to the ruins and the amazing views and had a coffee at the lovely restaurant. Very clean and well worth a visit. Dog friendly.

Hi, from the car park, there is a steep hill leading to the twin towers, once you have overcome this problem, the coastal path is pretty well flat all the way to Minnis Bay.
