Are the NT now trying to stop us entering without paying and making us go through the visitor Centre? We need to fight this if that's the case!

seems like there is a lot of upset over NT forcing the local vender out and trying to make people pay to see the giants causeway. Apparently you can access the causeway free, but NT seem to be making people go through their centre and pay. Lot of posts on facebook about the free access road that visitors dont know about.

Look up McConagheys souvenir shop on Facebook for more info. This seems to have been initiated against the NT and not by them. I believe they have blocked off the access over the roof which was my usual visitor centre bypass.

I would just run the gauntlet past the NT staff in yellow coats through the tunnel in future. I usually cycle there when staying nearby. They made me get off my bike and push it back up the hill from the stones for safety reasons last time. I would not have been fit to cycle back up anyway!

I wouldn't trust the NT any further than I could throw them.
We were there recently and I asked a ranger about the free access and at the mo it definitely is still there at any time of night or day. Presumably the parking would be free too if the visitor centre has closed and the car park staff have gone home! Which also means that it should be possible to overnight there...
It is a disgrace that they don't mention the free access anywhere...

I wouldn't either in my local area there's a piece of common land around 3 acres of headland which the NT have been trying to grab for years even up to putting up signs and donation box's. Which are removed immediately by the locals with support from the local councillors.
So any situation involving the NT needs close monitoring

At a guess.... Cornwall.
That’s where Witzend lives.

I should have said 'where in Cornwall' as that is where we live too...
