Cannon at Shieldaig, Scotland

Shieldaig is a small village in Wester Ross in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland and home to around 100 people. Last summer we were driving through the area and parked by the loch side for a break. Sitting on a bench looking over the water I noticed this old cannon. According to Wikipedia this village was founded in 1800 with a view to training up seamen for war against Napoleon, so this cannon probably represents this history.
