Here are the required pictures of the Lamont Memorial in Dunoon.







and the inscription:

    In memory of
    their loyal forefathers
    who perished near this spot
    the clan Lamont
    dedicate this monument
    September 1906.

    During the civil wars of the seventeenth
    century the Lamonts espoused the Royalist cause
    thereby incurring the hostility of neighboring
    clans who laid siege to the castles of
    Toward and Escog.
    Sir James Lamont of that ilk was forced to
    surrender at Toward on 3rd June 1646. When in
    violation of articles of capitulation and indemnity
    signed by the besiegers, over two hundred
    of the Lamonts were bound
    carried in boats to Dunoon
    and there murdered
