The road getting there was very narrow. A couple of times we came up on very large lorries (trucks) and I thought for sure we wouldn't make it, but there are passing lay-bys and you just backup and squeeze into one and suck in your breath real hard! Your really out in the middle of no where here too. We went over a cattle grid and the vehicle started making a terrible noise in one wheel. Yikes! Pulled over and looked at it and didn't see anything hanging down or loose. For a brief minute we thought this might be a little more adventure than we planned on! But when we started down the road again the noise had stopped. Hallelujah!
|You can see some of the churning water off the cliff there|
The lighthouse has 115 steps and the views are spectacular! Alan doesn't particularly like heights, but he went up with me! I don't like edges so we made a pair! The lighthouse didn't bother me at all but I could never get close to the edge of that cliff there!
|These are the gas tanks that build up the pressure for the fog horn. I don't think they use these anymore though.|
|Thats the fog horn way down there on the point|
|another area of churning water where the currents meet|
If you get to Scotland, you MUST go to Mull of Galloway!
