Lazaretto Point

A headland on the southern shore of the Holy Loch in Argyll and Bute, Lazaretto Point lies north of Ardnadam and opposite Graham's Point. A quarantine station was built here in 1807, to prevent disease being imported with bales of cotton. It was demolished in 1840, except for a section wall which remains today.

A large war memorial, in the form of a round tower, is located here.
