  • Easy to get to and interesting - however please note that it will only take you ten minutes to see the lot. You can park very close, and the area surrounding has many good walks and sea views.  more »

  • My Father was stationed there in the 50s and I played there when I was a child in the late 60s early 70s when it was derelict. A great place to visit if you are interested in war history of N.Ireland. Also a nice coastal walk at the front of the fort
  • One of the few places to miss everything from WW2. The station fired once and missed against a dummy ship. It is well worth a visit. The fort is built into the countryside with observation posts layed out in front.
  • Very interesting historical site which I never knew existed.
  • Great spot for a walk with the dog, also a great fishing spot in the summer for mackerel down the back on the rocks
  • Big guns and superb views. What's not to like?
