Despite the warnings in Simon’s book (page 134) we missed the turning for the lakes at our first attempt.
These are two National Trust managed lakes that are up a single track road off the main road. The road lived up to its billing with steep hairpin bends and gates that needed to be opened. We were grateful that we were the only car on the track.
We parked in the small National Trust car park and headed down to the lake.
Above the car park was a small hill. From there we could look down the valley and across the lake.
Here are some images captured by Steve as we drove back down the single track road.
We stopped to look down into the valley and the sea.
Then it was back down again.
