OK, so some reviewer said that this walk was fine for those with a fear of heights! So I got to stare at the cliff-face, feeling dizzy for 500 metres while everyone was admiring the view. It's a dead drop and real scary.

Breathtaking views of the beautiful village and the surrounding mountains. Close enough of the railway station to be done without your own car.

Breathtaking views of the village below; this hike brings you to a very good restaurant at the top. You'll even get to see the biggest slugs along your way.
