For the Goat crags park at Icart carpark ( year round toilets & Kiosk in summer) and follow the cliffpath round to the headland before heading down the climbers path along the right-hand side of the ridge. Using in-situ stakes & the big boulder to belay off, rig a rope to 'abseil' across the chossy coupée - return by scrambling/prussiking. For Kid Island head down the eastern side of the descent ridge nearly to sea level then follow a wide ledge system back towards the coupée. It is possible to get across to the Goat crags from Kid Island, but then you'll be short on time. Kid island needs the tide to be about 2 hours either side of low water or below for the scramble approach, and a bit higher if you cross the coupée and descend down the grassy ridge to it, however you'll need to do a see-saw abseil to get back off the stack. No bird restrictions, but seagulls nest on the Chateau and Kid Island.
