The guide had lots of knowledge and made it interesting. Unfortunately by the time we reached the top it was lashing with rain

Loved the buildings especially the Egyptian style lighthouse keeper's cottages. Unfortunately we won't be here on a Saturday as that is the day the lighthouse is open to the public. Would have loved to climb to the top. Perhaps next time.
