Rosehall War Memorial, Creich, Sutherland
Location: Junction of A837 and A839 west of Lairg
OS Ref:NC 485 013
Design : Celtic Cross

This is the second memorial in the parish of Creich , the other larger memorial is in Bonar Bridge. Some of the names on this memorial are on the one in Bonar and a couple are on the Kincardine & Croick memorial in Ardgay as well. Rosehall covers Invercassley and Altass and the small hamlets on the Croick side of the River Oykel.

I only have a 35mm image of Rosehall which I'll need to scan. Here are the names in the mean time. Mostly 5th Seaforths and Lovat Scouts:
