It would mean a lot more than just another monument and area of beauty, if one knows the history behind the area and the monument.
Even for those not in the know, it is still a worthy area to visit as another scenic spot in...More
Seen from the train, this imposing monument to the clansmen of the area who were supporting the Stewart Cause in one of the many uprisings is very easy to spot.

We arrived right on opening time at 10am and were just about the last car in the car park! There is a serious problem with parking at this wonderful attraction (I believe this is being looked at but seriously the government needs to help this...More
