Sunset view

Fort Bennet is a nice lookout location and good spot for relaxing and watching the sunset. Bring your camera and get those sunset shots.

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

The views from the Fort is magnificent, but there is not much else but a couple of cannons. Not a must see but if you are in the area stop off and take a few photos

Was a cool nice chill spot that was also a Pokéstop (for those who play Pokémon Go) Was walking distance from the Guest House we stayed at (Birdies Nest) and was a lovely place to watch the sunset on a evening.

If you are staying in Black Rock you can walk to Fort Bennett. This piece of Tobagonian history dates back to the seventeenth century is a great stop, relax and to get some good photographs.

Great views of the bays, but thats about it. There is a canon or two and a few seats, so it suits for taking photos but you'll only need 15 mins there.
