Was a neat trip up all the stairs. The view was amazing. And lets you imagine what the original lighthouse keepers did in their time.

Fascinating to learn the history of the light house and its place in history. The view from the top is outstanding. Like other attractions it's best to get there when it opens to really enjoy it.

I think it would be quite hard for you My advice is visit the garden outside the light house Karen

The stairs are very very narrow, it can be a little frightening passing someone going the opposite direction. There's really no where to stop to rest. But I wouldn't necessarily say it's really steep.
