MACDONALD MONUMENT - Dingwall

This impressive monument is on top of Mitchell Hill, to the south of, and overlooking Dingwall. It is a square-section 100ft (30m) tower designed by the architect James Sandford Kay and built by public subscription. It was chosen from 150 other designs. The foundation stone was laid on 25th September 1905 and it was first opened, with appropriate ceremony, on Thursday, 23rd May 1907. A photograph of that can be seen on the right. There is an inscription on a narrow panel on the Tower on which the text below can be seen. If you are in ANY DOUBT AT ALL about the Sir Hector Case - read this.
