Yet another total wind up, would be ok if you have a military tracked vehicle, total swamp. Other parking area with hard standing is out of bounds. You couldn't make it up.

Very busy spot but loads of space, SC only some guy was checking. But awesome spot sea views, awesome walk to the famous three sisters. Everyone very friendly and happy, nice and quiet on the night, toilets short distance away.
