About the memorial: The site of the Battle of Harlaw, in which Donald, Lord of the Isles was defeated by the Earl of Mar on 24th July 1411. It was erected by the Burgh of Aberdeen to celebrate the 500th anniversary on the approximate site of the battle and was designed by Aberdonian architect William Kelly. The monument was commissioned and paid for by the corporation of the City of Aberdeen and inaugurated in July 1914. The monument overlooks where much of the battle was said to have taken place. Though in Aberdeenshire Council's area, the monument is cared for by Aberdeen City Council.
