Ross & Cromarty War Memorials

 

MUIR of ORD

The Monument is a circular, truncated cone, about 25 feet (7.5m) in diameter at the base, and about the same in height. Construction is of large stones cemented together. It stands about 100 metres back from the road, on a small hilly slope in a pleasant setting of trees (holly etc) and rhododendrons. Entrance to the grounds is via a metal gate about 100 metres along the west side of Corry Road which comes off the A862 just west of the railway bridge.

The 1939-1945 War names are on a harp-shaped slab of red granite fixed on the lower front of the 1914 monument.

The map reference is NH527 502 on OS Sheet 26.
