Kilfinan - Argyll & Bute, Cowal District

The Kilfinan war memorial is a grey gantie obelisk on pedestal which stands on a low rough cairn of local stone with the commemoration and names of the dead listed in lead lettering on the pedestal faces. A flag is carved in heavy relief furling around the surfaces of the obelisk. It is located at the road junction in the middle of the village.
