What did I learn? Do not set the itinerary as if everything will run on time. We missed two of our planned outings the first day.


We did get to the Cliffs of Mohr which were amazing. Make sure you stay on the path as there have been people who have fallen and been blown off the cliffs. The only Puffin we saw was this one in the Visitor’s Centre though.
