If in the area a must see, at least to satisfy curiosity. After leaving the car park a steady incline over partially rough track brings you to a giant cycle sculpture which you must not climb. As if. The spiralling structure gives splendid views across...More

Visited last week unfortunately 60+ mph winds so did not stay long spectacular views all round. The seating arrangement just above the car alcove sheltered us from the winds
