  • A poignant reminder of the clearances. Give credit to whoever had 4 flagpoles set up, with the flags of USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand to emphasise where the emigrants went to.  more »
  • Lovely spot.....but of a bit of history lesson tinged with hardship/sadness. Interesting & well worth the visit.  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.
