Lovely day on beautiful Lundy. Not only did I bag the summit, I also went to the top of the lighthouse - best view on the island. Saw puffins as wellM3WDD21/06/2016

Bagged on a trip to Lundy from Ilfracombe with Ian Brown. Had to return to Bideford due to a force 5 wind.Dugswell226/08/2014
The OS1:50k shows a 142m spot height SS 13242 44773 named Ackland's Moor; this would appear to be the highest point on Lundy. On the ground the old lighthouse seems to be higher.jonglew06/09/2012
Lundy holiday with the Englishs.Fionalevey14/08/2011
Fine day out. Walk up the ramp and paths from the boat. Then there is the pub (good beer and food) and a shop - the summit is about 15 minutes away on the plateau.destaylor02/07/2011
Spent 4 days on the island - wonderful. Visited both potential high points and it's worth noting that most of the area around the lighthouse is disturbed ground - graveyard, foundations, walls, etc so this summit may be an artificial one.Chris Peart23/09/2008
With CM amd PB when camping on the island.bolton28/08/2007
High point is obvious when you get there. Lundy is an interesting place but not as special as the Scillies!signyred26/06/2007

For the fun of it a gang of us slept at the top of the ligthouse around the light then abseiled off the top the next morning.An amazing climbing week during which the island was invaded by twitchers desperate to see the Ancient Murlet - the first time it had ever been spotted in Europe.Chris Pearson31/05/1990
