Macduff - Banff & Buchan District (Banff Area)
Macduff , UKNIWM Ref No. 8864


The Macduff war memorial takes the form of a castellated octagonal tower. As mentioned in other posts there are many coastal towns and ports who's war memorials took the form of tall towers erected on a hill or headland which thereby provided usefull points of bearing for boats returning to harbour.

The tower stands on the Knowes overlooking the town.

The casualties detailed upon it were known due to the diligence of George Forbes Dickson, Macduff. He kept a detailed record of those from his native town who went off to the war, and those who would return home never more, which was published in 1919.
