On Thursday from 9.30am to 11am and on Sunday from 11.30am to 1.30pm, join a Souter ranger for a Seashore Safari among the rock pools. There is no need to book, just meet in the Foghorn Field, but be dressed appropriately for the weather, especially with sensible footwear as the rocks can be very slippery. The cost is £1 per person with nets and buckets provided, but you are welcome to bring your own. The safari is suitable for all ages, but children must be accompanied by an adult and dogs on leads are welcome.
