Ross & Cromarty War Memorials

 

CARLOWAY District

This War Memorial is remarkable in a number of ways. It is of red Balmoral Marble and was only set up recently, in 1989. Each face is devoted to a Service, shown below as highlighted, clickable options. Each of these has an appropriate and pleasing image above it. See 'More Info' for illustrations of them.

The names are in white lettering, and stand out well. These commenorate the 'Iolaire' Disaster in 1919 as well as WW1 and WW2.

This District is on the west coast of Lewis and is a crofting township. It is in the parish of Uig and has population of about 500. It is notable for various historic sites such as the Garenin Blackhouse Village and an Iron Age broch at Doune Carloway. Also notable is Scotland's oldest flyover , Carloway Bridge, dating to the 19th century, which crosses the Carloway River. There is Carloway Pier and Harbour.

NOTE: A row of asterisks (*) indicates 'end of a side'. Also note that the name of a 'side' does not imply anything other than remembrance. Note also, that there is an entry for the Korean War on the 'Royal Navy' side; click that and then scroll forward. Lastly, there is an entry for the HMY Iolaire Disaster at end of Royal Air Force side.

The OS map reference is NB 206 425 on Sheet ??

The lettering on the Monument is as follows -

IN FOND REMEMBRANCE OF
THOSE WHO MADE THE SUPREME SACRIFICE
THAT WE MAY HAVE OUR FREEDOM
