Beautiful wee harbour with it's very own Lobster Shack - alfresco only! Try the crab or lobster freshly cooked on site.

Fine picturesque and historic harbour with a nice Gallery and Tearoom selling attractive handmade souvenirs. Or you can have crab/lobster and refreshments from the hut, al fresco or under a shelter. If you visit at low tide try and return a few hours later. It is prettier with the water in.

There is also a cafe and craft shop too. So many memories for me but a pretty place to spend some time for new visitors too. The... More

A very interesting harbour and still very busy by the look of the number of creels piled up around the place.
