ARDROSS MEMORIAL



As can be seen from the inscriptions, this is not a war memorial. However, it is noteworthy as it commemorates a visit by the 1st London Scottish when they marched through the Highlands in July 1937.

The inscription reads -
THIS TREE WAS PLANTED BY LT COL T W CUTHERTSON CMG, DSO, TD 4TH SEAFORTH HIGHDRS AND LT COL L D HENDERSON CMG, MC, TD DL 1ST LONDON SCOTTISH TO COMMEMORATE THE MARCH OF THE LONDON SCOTTISH THROUGH THE HIGHLANDS

JULY 1937


Underneath is a small plaque with the words:  "This Stone replaces the tree destroyed in June 1985"
