Culloden - Inverness District
Does not appear to have a UKNIWM listing.

The Culloden WWI and WWII memorial is a rustic pink granite obelisk crowned by an urn with eternal flame and with a wreath draped over the crown with a crossed sword and rifle carved in relief. The obelisk stands on a tapering pedestal and base which in turn rest on a low tapering cairn type base constructed of local stone. The commemoration and names of the dead are listed in black lead lettering on the dressed face of the pedestal.
Sorry I do not have a note of the exact location of this monument.

After a lot of searching around Culloden and asking various people (even a Redcoat!), I realised that these images are of the Petty War Memorial.
