Conon War Memorial [trees have been removed]

Conon falls within the parish of Urquhart which also includes the village of Culbokie.  In the original Culbokie School there was a memorial plaque dedicated to former pupils who perished in WW1.

Ross and Cromarty Heritage Society is grateful to Angus Bethune who photographed the plaque prior to the closure of the old Culbokie School.
