  • Powerful monument to remind us of the atrocities committed on the people during the highland clearances. Set on a lovely spot. Lest we forget.  more »

  • Great views of the sea, a great field with a local football game going on nearby. Interesting monument!
  • There is plenty of parking and a view over the village and the harbour. The memorial has women and children, with one woman having a last look back, which makes it all the more poignant. It was funded by locals and emigrants hence the different flags flying. Hard not to feel something.
  • Nice place to stop and rest
  • Love spot with some great views, if your passing worth a stop.
  • Poignant and moving as it relates to the highland clearances
