  • 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.
