Good views

Not much of a fort left. It does give good views into the sea. Interesting rocks in the sea. There was no entry fee, but there is a manned booth by the entrance.

This is a simple location with a couple of cannons and a pavilion that provides a beautiful view of the ocean and is a great place to watch the sunset!

If your a couple this is a very romantic destination. The scenery is so beautiful you could end up falling in love all over again lol. I would recommend this place for a nice romantic picnic.

We looked out over Courland Bay from here, and watched the pelicans diving. The views are great, and there are still cannons remaining from when it was a real Fort

This was a spontaneous visit and it was quite a serene location. Nested atop of a small hill a concrete pathway takes you to a cabana looking down at black rock and waves crashing against the cliff.

Interesting bit of history on the island and worth a visit to the hilltop fort - stunning views. The climb is gentle and easy for all. Great for memorable photos

Walked here as it was near our hotel, small but important in its day. Nice walk to it through the village and good view back to Stonehaven beach
