A lighthouse view

More than the monument and the story behind it, what we loved was the splendid looking lighthouse nearby and the view. Unbelievable sunshine for a Dec day.

It was just a big stone which was set in concrete at a car park. The pupils of the local school put it there in the 70s to commemorate the burning of a local mistic at the behest of local aristocracy 200 or 300 years ago.

Just a plaque but it is on Chanonry point where you can watch the local Bottle Nosed Dolphins. Check out the review for Chanonry Point.

Windy walk around Chanonry Point, great for getting rid of the cobwebs. No dolphins tho'. Wasn't aware of the Brahan Seer story until I came here.

We visited this by accident. It was the location and views of the area that drew us. The monument itself is underwhelming with little extra info available on hand regarding the seer directly.

If you like scary history stories then the fate of the Brahan Seer is once to learn and you get a brief version at the monument
