Castles and Gardens
Going south along the cliff path will bring you to Dunskey castle, and if you continue you will reach Morroch Bay and then Knockingham Lodge, (a Michilin starred restaurant situated on it’s own beach) which will serve you lunch.
Thanks to the Gulf Stream the area enjoys a mild climate which has resulted in several gardens being developed here over the years, some of which feature unusual sub-tropical plants and tree ferns.
