A panorama from Gun Hill. This is the second highest elevation on Grand Turk. In the early 1780s a small fortification with two cannons was built at this site by the English governor for protection against French invasion. The French did not attack immediately and the fort was dismantled. Most of the rocks were taken away for use in other building projects on the island, though the foundation rocks can still be seen.
If you look to the far right you can first see Gibbs Cay and then Long Cay.
