Ross & Cromarty War Memorials

 

CROMARTY


 The memorial is built of dressed blocks of stone, square in section, and about 5 metres in height. The top is castellated with gun-like protrusions on each corner at the top. Near the top is a cross surrounded by a wreath. Inscriptions and names are on four polished light grey marble plaques.

The upper part of the monument sits on a step-like structure of three rectangular plinths of size increasing to the base. The whole is surrounded by an iron fence with an opening where a gate may have been at one time.

It is located on a hill, to the south of the town, and next to the cemetary. Coming in to Cromarty from the west, take the right fork, and turn right at the football ground.
