Getting to and from the fort
The housekeeper is arranging taxies to meet us at the airport at 10:30 on the Monday and take our bags only to the fort. He will met use at the fort at 16:00 for the guided tour.
Taxies have been arrange for all 13 of us to get us to the airport for 07:45 on Friday for our departure.
The taxi company will be Island Taxies (Chris and or Peter).

Tide Tables
The full 2006 tide tables are here.
We may have 'issues' at high tide as the causeway to Fort Clonque may be cut off. The Causeway is 5.7 metres above sea level but sea level is very sensitive to atmospheric pressure and wind will cause the waves to splash. So for Monday the house keeper says he would leave a hour each side of 9:24 BST.
