Found this on 'Old Breadalbane Surnames'

"Mr. Peter McPhail, born at Balnasuim, Lawers, a prosperous merchant in Edinburgh, gave the sum of 2,000 in 1919 to the Kenmore Nursing Association to form a memorial of his only son, Lieutenant P. J. Stewart McPhail, R.G.A., who died in hospital at Winchester, 26th November, 1918. The Marquis of Breadalbane at the same time intimated his intention to grant a perpetual title to the Association for the cottage occupied by the nurse in the village of Kenmore; and the Association has since been called "The Stewart McPhail Memorial Nursing Association." Mr. Peter McPhail died at Craigmillar Park, Edinburgh, 11th September, 1921. His widow, Catherine McEwen, who was born at Ardradnaig, survives (1937)."

Well done I had the reference you quoted but nothing else. Have lived in area for most of my life and never seen it.
What a find. I will be going out to Kenmore to have a look.
You never know what out there eh?
How did you spot that?
