Ross & Cromarty War Memorials

 

AULTBEA

The monument is located at a T-junction of the A832 road to Dundonnell. It is a pleasing light grey pillar, with a carved and pointed top. Further down the slightly tapering pillar is a sword motiv, with a wreath surrounding the hilt. Then another square section with more carvings.

There are name-lists on all four sides of the main block of the Memorial, totalling 34 names for 1914-18, and another eight for 1939-45 on a lower block, where there is only one list.

Aultbea has another story to tell relating to the Russian Arctic Convoys which assembled there in World War II - see 'More Info' below.
