The history behind this monument makes interesting reading. Great viewpoint too. Good place to stop and seal/dolphin watch (if you're lucky). The day I was there did manage to see 1 seal!

We went to Chanonry Point to see the Dolphins again. Since we was here last year the point has had a makeover. In my opinion the carpark may look 'pretty' but it is smaller than previously! There are now 2 disable bays when 3 cars...More

This is a simple stone monument with a couple of signs giving a clear explanation of what its about, its the setting of Chanonry Point that is the attraction, and worth it, see separate review!
