The WW1/2 memorial is inside the public hall, as per UKNIWM entry. Both hall and church were locked when I visited.

The parish is combined with Stralachlan which should have it's own WM but it's parish ch was also locked and I didn't see any roadside memorial.

A scan from the book "For Remembrance" by Sir James Gildea. The book was published in 1911.
