Hello all. below is the list I compiled. Some are already on this forum, marked with an XXX, tho I think I've missed a couple of "XXX"s off.

Hope this is not too confusing.

All the best

Ross and Cromarty

Visited in 1983/84. Again, no photos or names, only recorded the numbers.

I have looked up the forum and those with starting with an XXX are already there.

I have also looked up the UKNI/Lost Gen sites for entries.

There are several parishes, towns villages and districts. These I found; any missing, I didn’t find.

Loch Broom parish:

XXX in Ullapool, on the main rd south of village: 58 + 24

and at Achiltibuie (commemorating the men of Coigach) 26 + 10. Both on UKNI, 44560/5.

Kincardine parish WM is at Ardgay village, 46 + 10.

Edderton is on the A9, 26 + 9

XXX Tarbat parish WM is in Portmohomack village, 35 + 16 UKNI ref 5915

XXX Fearn’s is at Hill of Fearn village, 45 + 25

Logie Easter is on the A9 at grid ref 778 757 24 + 14

XXX Kilmuir Easter is on the old A9 at Kilmuir church, 28 + none shown WW2. I do not think this is 6024 on the UKNI. Grid ref doesn’t match my map and says 12 casuallties WW1.

Roskeane parish has 2, one at Invergordon, 75 + 20 (UKNI ref 44558). the other is at Alness station, which is not in Alness parish but commemorates men of Alness and Roskeane, 65 + 20.

Alness: see Roskeane

XXX Kiltearn’s is at Evanton village, 42 + 16 and one in 1979 in Ulster.

Dingwall’s is near the station, there are 4: the Boer War, WWs 1 and 2 (UKNI 13473), 4th Seaforths and the railwaymen. I recorded 106 + 32, presumably the world wars.

Fodderty has 2: on the cemetery gates on the Dingwall Rd and commemorates Strathpeffer and district and one at Maryburgh for M and district. My notes say it is between a hill to the south of A834 and the river Conon: 38 + 6. Probably the minor rd running west of Maryburgh village to Contin.

XXX Contin’s is on the main rd: 17 + 3

Gairloch has 2, on the main rd to the south, but is a list of those who served (is this UKNI 44809?). Also at Kinlochbervie behind the garage. No detail.

Applecross: has 2, at Torridon village commemorating 34 + 4 of the Shieldaig Registration district, and one XXXX in Shieldaig village itself, 16 + 4.

XXX Lochcarron: in main street, 30 + 8

Lochalsh: there is one in Plockton village (UKNI 44528),

XXX and one at ? Reraig, 66 + 18 but can’t read my own notes.

Kintial: a monument on the A87 is for “All the Mcraes”, (spelling?) but no parish or district

Urqhart and Logie Wester is at Conon bridge village on the A9, 45 + 6

Resolis, don’t know location, but have recorded 21 + 13

XXX Rosemarkie’s is by Fortrose abbey, 33 + 8 UKNI ref 44797

Avoch 60 + 21 UKNI 44566

Knockbain 38 + 17

Killearnan 24 + 6

These last 5 were presumably easily found, unlike the others not listed here.

All four Dingwall memorials are on the forum. The railwaymen one you mention I think is to Sgt Meikle VC , 4th Seaforths
