In case anyone is looking at Anne Alexander, she is not on the Scottish National WM and I am led to believe she was Australian.

This memorial has been moved at some time from its previous location at a road junction NT 113 360. The previous location is far from a safe place to hold a ceremony with today's traffic which is why I guess it was moved to the middle of the village.
