I found this WM in 2006. Sorry no photo or names.

It is on the dead-end road to Loch Buie, by the side of the road where another dead end road goes off round the south shore of Loch Spelve.

Grid ref on my old 1 inch map is 655 258.

It commemorates Loch Spelve parish (which is not shown on the map as a civil parish). There are 8 names listed from WW1 only.

Situated at the road-end leading to the former Killean Parish Church shewn in the background












Thank you to Priscilla Scott for translation - Sapper

Local Roadman (always a fount of knowledge) informed me that memorial had been refurbished within the past year, up till then it had been in a sorry state.
