Millennium Cross, Ardross Castle
The Cross commemorating the Millennium, in the grounds of Ardross Castle.
The plaque at the foot of the Cross, which reads “This Sacred Cross was erected on the 29th day of August in the Year of Our Lord 2000 by John McTaggart, pilgrim, in commemoration of the second millennium from the birth of our saviour Jesus Christ.”
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.
