Sergeant John Meikle Memorial

This Memorial presently stands in the Square at the Railway Station in Dingwall. It was originally erected at Nitshill Station, Glasgow and was unveiled there in January 1920 by Lady Lorimer. This seven-foot high rough-hewn slab of granite inscribed and embellished with carvings of a rifle and laurel wreaths was removed from the station to protect it from damage by vandals and re-erected in the station square, Dingwall in 1971.

The inscription on the memorial reads as follows:
