Walked over (and back) with the hoards whilst on holiday with Jenny: an excellent location and views around the bay.JOHNS26/06/2017
Walked over and up to see the castleBellebow28/09/2016
Got the boat over and walked back. Absolutely heaving but a stunning location. With K, M and X.Herbert Anchovy23/08/2016
Really impressive historical site with lovely gardens. Waded back ( ankle deep) at LW. The natural HP is exposed natural rock on the left hand side by the entrance to the chapel ( entrance fee payable) known as the 'wishing stone.' In hindsight should have moored in the harbour ( dries) not paid our £2 for the ferry!Denise 14/07/2016
Sand, sea, sunshine and an island with a castle, could almost be on holiday! Highest exposed rock is the well touched Wishing Stone (where you can make a wish - usually of the romantic kind) beneath N wall of chapel. Boat over and paddle back.RichardM14/07/2016
Church tower inside castle walls appears to be over natural highpoint. Natural rock exposed in N wall of church 2m W of NW corner of church tower with exposed stone directly under tower (same level) which may or may not be original summit levelled off. OS GR for bolt on tower probably best bet for summit location. Over by boat at 10, cuppa til castle opened at 1030, toured inside Castle then gardens then back over 1130ish when causeway clear (2hr30) before low tide) and a few hundred folk heading across. NT / NTS members free, boat £2 single. NB CASTLE CLOSED SATURDAYS.RHW07/07/2016

What can I say? A truly unique and amazing summit. And free if you're a National Trust Member. Nice to get the boat out and walk back along the causeway. The gardens are stunning and well worth a visit if you're there.wheresthepath25/05/2015
Fifth TUMP and first SIB of a lovely day in Cornwall. Did the tour of the castle and the gardens which were splendid.Dugswell207/05/2015
Causeway to island, boat on return. There is bedrock visible in the N wall of the church that sits on the summit. Top of rock seems to be level with the floor of the church.PeteF26/10/2014

Does anyone need to read a log to know about this hill? Unique.ijpowell03/08/2013
First visited whilst on a junior school trip in the late 70's but chosen this day as I noted the actual date due to finding a geocache associated with this island.CornishGazza17/02/2013
