Statement of Interest

A plain but well crafted war memorial with a finely sculpted granite cross. Designed by Bell and Harvey Architects of Stirling. The cross is white Creetown granite built by Scott and Rae of Glasgow. The rockfaced pedestal was built from local Aberfoyle whinstone by James Kerr of Drymen Station. The unveiling ceremony was held on Sunday 15th October 1922 with Earl Haig and the Duke of Montrose in attendance. Of local importance as a good example of a village and district war memorial.
