Need a romantic spot for wedding proposal in Lorne

I'm taking my girlfriend on a surprise holiday to drive GOR next week, and am looking for a romantic picnic/lookout setting where I can propose in Lorne. We are staying in Lorne on the first night and I'd tried to get a reservation at Maple Tree but they're booked out, so I'm thinking I should arrange a picnic with champagne at a lookout or beach location instead.

Can anyone recommend any spots that would be suitable and within close vicinity to Lorne. Thanks!

What about proposing to your girl friend at Erskine falls or just a bit further off the GOR is she oak falls?

Both have picnic grounds and not far out of Lorne.

I agree with Famrick on Erskine Falls. There's also a couple of cosy beaches along the GOR, that you could set up a picnic.

Thanks for the recommendations re: Erskine Falls. One thing to clarify is that I'm looking to propose at sunset, and was looking or somewhere to take advantage of that time of day. Worried that Erskine Falls could be quite dark at that time, so keen to focus somewhere on the coast itself.

Do you think Teddy's Lookout would be suitable for a sunset picnic proposal?

Teddy's lookout might be just the place have a look at the reviews on TA.

Congrats and good luck hope she says yes.

Teddy's Lookout: Dramatic, memorable and impressive, yes, but if there's a wind, it may not be the best place for a picnic. In this case, perhaps produce the champers after she's accepted, then after a glass or two, retire for an intimate dinner in town.
