Remote but well worth the trip. Just a pity that it hasn't been a bit more cared for and turned into a real tourist attraction. Free and open 24/7. Fantastic views
Marvellous view and very fascinating structure. It’s an awesome engineering achievement and your mind really goes in fantasy mode when exploring the abandoned buildings, tunnels and cannons.
Great unspoilt place. Quite a trek especially as it was about 34°. My tips is to take water with you (unlike us). Great views & you'll love the road up there if you like a big drop next to you
Brilliant views and quite a walk .. Huge guns... Get inside them but you will need a torch also heath and safety nightmare. at your own risk. You can climb through hole or go in through sea facing exit slot on south turret only..
The road is a bit narrow and rough but I got up there in my lwb T5. Fantastic views and be prepared for a lot of walking. Electric mountain bike could be the way to go.
