Atmospheric, emotive, a visit into the past of the community through names,epithets and associations. More than just Flora McDonald s grave, it is her community.Highly recommended if you sense history in what you see and feel.

When you know the history and story behind this woman, you must visit this place. It is just a grave/memorial but worth a visit just the same. Beautiful views on a good day.

The Flora MacDonald Grave is nice but I came here to see Alexander McQueens grave really. Great place to be laid to rest.
