There are no photographs of this memorial available yet but we have two sources confirming its location. One of the sources is the Royal Commission for Ancient and Historic Monuments in Scotland (RCAHMS) and the details are taken from their Canmore database. The other source is the United Kingdom National Inventory of War Memorials (UKNIWM) database.

I am not 100% whether the image I found on-line actually does show the memorial at Clachan ath Luib. It is a thumbnail on the SCRAN website, which can be accessed here.
The image shows a congregation of people in the 1940s, gathered for a communion. A full image is only available to SCRAN subscribers.
