Corpach and Banavie - Lochaber District

The Corpach war memorial is listed under Banavie in the Royal British Legion (Scotland) Directory and also covers Achnacarry.
The memorial takes the form of a tall, conical shaped cairn constructed of grey granite blocks, surmounted by a small and plain grey granite celtic cross with wheel-head. The commemoration and names of the WWI dead are listed in black lead lettering on a dressed tablet set into the face of the cairn. The names of the WWII dead have been added in black lead lettering on the face of one of the granite blocks immediately below.
The monument stands by Corpach on the side of the road, the A830.
