About the memorial: This is a very large and prominent memorial on the hilltop at OS Map Ref NS 392 039. A fantastic view from the top – walking boots required. It can be seen from Straiton and for several miles around, the people in the first photo give it some scale. (c Scottish War Memorials Project). It is visible on the google satellite image if you zoom in sufficiently south east of the village and of a forested area.
