  • This has to be one of the most beautiful places in the Northern Shores. The view was breathtaking. There are fences to keep people safe, but it doesn't appear that anyone really follows those rules. T...  more »
  • It is a very bumpy and narrow road that only fits one car,you have to pull over if you meet up with another car. The end result is spectacular!  more »

  • Road is DANGEROUS. DO NOT use unless you have four wheel drive and a high carriage, we wound up using a farmer's field road to get back, because it was in better shape. Lighthouse is pretty, but by the looks of it will be falling into the sea a little sooner rather than later. Sadly, also our view of the cliffs were blocked by some thick Atlantic fog that rolled in. Look at pictures of this lighthouse, getting there yourself is just not worth it.
  • Spectacular views. Long drive on a dirt road. Well worth the trip! Be careful though about sharing the road. When we visited a guy pulled over too far so he could pass us from the opposite direction and he got stuck.
  • Do not try driving down the dirt road in wet weather, really shouldn't take a sedan down the road. It's about 3.0 miles to walk. Views are spectacular.
  • Beautiful views . Listen to the warning about the drive in. Use an SUV or truck
  • Wonderful sights from this location. It's a must!
