Description

Loch Lomond And Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

Sculpted by Alexander Carrick and unveiled on 29th October 1920, this figurative war memorial is prominently set at the southern entrance to Killin and is located close to the famous Falls of Dochart. Of importance to Killin as a memorial to those who gave their lives in the two World Wars and typical of the work of Carrick, the large battered coursed rubble stone base is surmounted by a three dimensional kilted soldier with full kit and slung rifle. The whole is surrounded by a low stone walled bench-type enclosure of post and lintel construction with pairs of simple rough hewn square piers surmounted by planters to the West and East forming entrances. An intervening cobbled/pebbled paving has the inscription, LEST WE FORGET.

Inscription to the South elevation reads, '1914-1919 TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND IN HONOURED MEMORY OF (NAMES) 1939-1945 (NAMES). Further names are recorded on panels to the West and East elevations.

MATERIALS

Predominantly pale pink sandstone to sculpture and base. Grey stone to bench enclosure. Light coloured stone cobbles/pebbles to enclosure with lettering in black.

Statement of Interest

A photograph dated 29th October 1920 in the Breadlabane Folklore Centre in Killin depicts a well-attended unveiling ceremony.
