This looks a cracking memorial and it will be easily identified by a visit to Inverness Town Hall. However I'm posting it here to see if anyone has any thoughts on it's title.

Looking at the names I think we've got memorials for some of the men already. Quite a few toffs in there by the looks of it.

How about the Highland Society of London?

The Earl of Seafield is also commemorated on the memorials at Elgin and Birnie (and possibly a few more!)

Here are some details on the other names.

Maj The Hon. Sir Schomberg Kerr McDonnell QOCH was born in Glenarm, County Antrim, and was educated at Eton and Oxford. He served as private secratary to Prime Minister Lord Salisbury. He fought in the Boer War and was knighted in 1902. He died at Ypres in 1915.
Given his Irish heritage I'd be surprised if he is on any other Scottish memorials.

McDONNELL, The Hon. Sir SCHOMBERG KERR
Rank: Major
Regiment/Service: Cameron Highlanders
Unit Text: 5th Bn.
Age: 54
Date of Death: 23/11/1915

Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: II. A. 7.
Cemetery: LIJSSENTHOEK MILITARY CEMETERY

Captain James Logan Mackie was James Logan Mackie, Younger of Glenreasdell. Glenreasdell is near Skipness in Argyll but he is lised on the Dundonald War memorial in Arshire.

MACKIE, JAMES LOGAN
Rank: Captain
Regiment/Service: Ayrshire Yeomanry
Unit Text: 1st/1st
Age: 24

Grave/Memorial Reference: D. 95.
Cemetery: JERUSALEM WAR CEMETERY, Israel

He is also commemorated on a grave in Troon Cemetery.

Captain Douglas E Brodie. His family had Brodie Castle near Forres but I haven't found his name on a Moray war memorial yet.

BRODIE, DOUGLAS EDWARD
Rank: Captain
Regiment/Service: Cameron Highlanders
Unit Text: 3rd Bn. attd. 1st Bn.
Age: 43
Date of Death: 17/08/1916
Additional information: Son of the late Hugh Brodie of Brodie, and Lady Eleanor Brodie, of Brodie, Brodie Castle, Forres.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: XI. C. 12.
Cemetery: CATERPILLAR VALLEY CEMETERY, LONGUEVAL

Capt William Mackinnon was another Irishman serving in a Scottish regiment and so is unlikely to be listed elsewhere on this forum.

MACKINNON, WILLIAM
Rank: Captain
Regiment/Service: London Regiment (London Scottish)
Unit Text: 1st/14th Bn.
Age: 33
Date of Death: 11/05/1917
Additional information: Son of Duncan Mackinnon, of Ballinahill, Leix; husband of Mrs. L. V. Mackinnon, of 50, Evelyn Gardens, Kensington, London.

Capt James Ogilvie Grant, 5th Cameron Highlanders, 11th Earl of Seafield is commemorated at Cullen, Banffshire. The Seafield family home was Cullen House.

He is not the first named there, but appears among the Rank and File. The foundation stone of the Cullen Parish War Memorial was laid by his widow, Nina, Countes, of Seafield in 1920.
