  • Fantastic views but could do with some more displays or something to attract people in. Totally get the entrance fee goes towards the upkeep but maybe some more displays (seasonal or annual) / events / poster boards to attract people? Perhaps some fixed binoculars for tourists to enjoy the view on the deck? But like I say, totally get it's often a "chicken or the egg" situation when it comes to funding these things.
  • Lacking in information for visitors. Entrance fee supports upkeep, which I understand, but given the lack of facilities for tourist information, and the lighthouse being behind scaffolding, entrance fee could be by donation. The view is lovely but better sweeping views from Grace town down coast.
