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!

The Brahan Seer was allegedly a mystic who could foresee the future by looking through a hole in a small white stone. Unfortunately, he gave an unwelcome prophecy and was burnt in a tar barrel for his troubles. There is a moral in there somewhere.

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...More
