My wife and I did not take the chairlift as the climb up The Nut seemed not daunting. It was only a 10-15 minute climb up a proper path. We walked the circuit at the top of The Nut and we chanced upon a large...More

Unfortunately when we got there the chairlift wasn't working. So we had to climb up. It was quite a steep climb. But its well worth it. Beautiful views all around.

We took the chairlift up to the top and the views are amazing of the town below and the ocean. It was extremely windy, so hold on to your hat.

We took the chairlift up and back, and walked about 2kms on the Nut itself. We didn't take the chairlift to be lazy, we took it because it's not something you can do every day.

Get up the courage and jump on the chair lift. Hop off at the top and do the short walk as the views and photo opps are great.

We rode the chairlift to the top. Quick and easy 5 minute ride. Lovely views. We walked around the top which is quite easy. Stanley itself is a very clean and tidy town. The buildings are very well maintained and the town has a beautiful...More

Great walk...although quite steep but well worth it for those capable of doing it. Brilliant views from the top from the many vantage point on the circuit walk around the top. For those less fit there is always the chairlift up.

We climbed to the top of the Nut the hard way, up the zig zag pathway but what a sense of accomplishment we had on reaching the top particularly as it was well over 30 degrees C. The Nut was far larger than expected with...More

Views are stunning and great walk up the hill for those who are fairly fit. Otherwise chairlift is a good option. The two kilometre summit walk is fairly easy for all and well worth it for the vegetation, views and local wildlife.

Amazing views 360 degree. Nice walk but you do exert some effort and not suited to those with mobility issues.

Hi Gummycat. The chairlift was not operational when I was there. Bring water and plenty of rest stops as you walk up.

The walk takes about 10-15 mins to top of the nut depending on how many stops required to take a breath or take great photos and of course much quicker to come back down. Once at the top it is just a leisurely walk around... More
