Situated just north of Ballachulish beside the A82.
It's an interesting memorial in that it lists the men of Ballachulish who died and those from neighbouring Glencoe - Glencoe having its own memorial.Here

Great pictures Derek,
As far as I know the soldier was carved by the Aberdeen granit mason Robert Warrack Morrison working for the Aberdeen firm Stewart & Co.
I've put notes on the entry for New Elgin in the Moray section.

Here's a photograph from "Miss MacDougalls Photo Album".




And also one found in the photo collection of my wife's family.

These details were posted by Jim McGinlay in another thread when we had two threads, one in Highland section and another in the Argyll section.


Ballachulish & Glencoe - Lochaber District
UKNIWM Ref no. 5893

The Ballachulish and Glencoe WWI memorial features the grey granite sculpture of a highland infantryman set on top of a tall square pedestal of rustic grey granite blocks. The commemoration and names of the dead are listed on a dressed grey granite tablet set into the face of the pedestal. As far as I know the memorial only lists the dead of WWI as I don't have any record or photograph of a WWII panel. Maybe someone can correct or confirm this?
The monument stands in a raised enclosure which is fronted by a wall and approached by stairs, beside road between village and bridge.
The memorial was by Stewart & Co. of Aberdeen and bears a striking resemblance to other Stewart & Co. sculptures at Tarland and Tough, both of which were almost certainly carved by Aberdeen granite mason Robert Warrack Morrison, so there is some possibility that this is another of Morrison's works.

For more information on Morrison see:

On a visit to Ballachulish this week and there a booklet on the area but showing pics of the memorial : Page 46 )

The Ballachulish & Glencoe war memorial was UNVEILED on 4th August 1923 by Lt Col IAN CAMPBELL of AIRDS, commanding Officer of the 8th Bn ARGYLL & SUTHERLAND HIGHLANDERS . He can be seen giving his speech . The ceremony began with a GUARD of TERRITORIAL ARMY soldiers , girl guides, and ex servicemen taking their places to the sound of the Pipes playing FLOWER O' THE FOREST . Dedication , prayers & the benediction were given by four clergymen before and after the Colonel's speech and the proceedings were concluded when Bugler Large from KINLOCHLEVEN sounded the LAST POST and the Pipes played LOCHABER NO MORE .
