ROCK STOP VISITOR CENTRE
Due to the current Corvid-19 crisis, The Rock Stop will remain closed until further notice. We will continuously monitor the situation and regularly review this decision.
In the meantime, why not visit the Virtual Rock Stop and browse the online shops of our partners? If you are able, buying online will be a huge support to many micro businesses who depend on summer income.
