This village is on Loch Long, part of Dunoon parish but has it's own WM in the village street. Rather difficult to photo so I didn't take one.

Here are some photos taken today John.
Ardentinny - Argyll & Bute, Cowal District.



The photos below were taken in the mid 1990's. The memorial must have been cleaned just before they were taken.



The village is unusual in that there is a high ratio of WWII names suggesting the population of the village was growing between the wars. This often happens when villages became commuter sattelites to larger towns and cities but I can't see how this could be the case with Ardentinny, unless there was a regular steamer service to Helensburgh?

What a lovely job the village has done with their Memorial. It has a very warm, intimate feel about it.
