Broadford, Isle of Skye

UKNIWM Ref: 5933
O/S Map ref: NG 646 233
N57 14.403 W5 54.113

Located just off the A850, 100 yards from Broadford Community Hall, a gravel path climbs up to a Celtic Cross design with 3 panels listing the names of 62 men who died in the Great War and 1 panel at the rear lists the names of a further 20 men who died in the Second World War.

I really was quite saddened to see the state of the surroundings the memorial finds itself in with broken bottles lying all around and the remain of poppy wreaths thrown around. Very neglected and this is more glaring when a public promenade just along the road is very colourful and well tended.
