We took the chairlift up to the top and enjoyed the walk around. It can be quite windy so tie down your hat or risk losing it. The views from atop the cliffs are breathtaking.

The chairlift up and down was, according to my wife, full of wonderful views. I kept my eyes shut for most of it! Once at the top the views are incredible and the 2km walk around the top a pleasant, if windy stroll. I'd recommend...More

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
