      The place was clean, showers were fine. TV is on its last legs. You get toast, tea and coffee included. We stayed in a double room (it also had a bunk).

      ... just hoped it would not be too busy. Unfortuntely when we arrived the small beach and waters were packed with people.Our plan was to walk to the other side of the Island in the hopes of finding a quieter spot but a local man assured us that there was nothing but cliffs on the other side.

Although levels of TB are increasing in the UK most cases tend to be asymptomatic or treated before severe symptoms develop so I've had little exposure to the disease.
