The stone is evidence of the history of Inversnaid as an important 18th century military settlement.
See the list description for Inversnaid, The Garrison, for further information.
The enclosure also contains several very small 18th century headstones, most of which are buried under turf. One of these has a shaped head and bears an inscription dated 1750.
