Tarbert - Argyll & Bute, Mid-Argyll District

The Tarbert memorial overlooking the fishing village on Loch Fyne. The grey granite obelisk stands on a tapering pedestal and low rustic granit base and is by Glasgow monumental sculptors Scott Rae. According to the inscription at the front it was unveiled by Lady Campbell on the 6th August 1921. Fishing villages often have their war memorials sited on top of a local hill were they are visible from the sea and can provide the fishermen with an accurate bearing when navigating their boats home, a nice and fitting idea for a memorial.
The entry in Scott Rae's Daybook reads:
'Order No. 5500, Tarbert, Grey obelisk, Erected June 1921, Daybok 329'.

On a quiet sunny Sunday morning in late Spring this is one of the finest places on Earth. A very good place for a memorial.

From The Scotsman Monday, 8th August 1921, page 6

TARBERT

A monument in memory of the 69 men belonging to Tarbert, Loch Fyne, who gave their lives in the war was unveiled on Saturday by Lady Ileene Campbell of Stonefield. The memorial takes the form of a granite column, with a flag winding round three sides. The names of the fallen are carved on the sides of the base, and the column stands on a built foundation. A commanding site has been secured, overlooking the village and the harbour. The dedication service was taken by several local clergymen and an address was given by Captain Evan Campbell of Dunmore, representing friends. After the ceremony wreaths were placed on the monument.
