About the memorial: A powerfully carved figure of a Highland Infantryman standing on a cairn constructed from boulders gathered from the slopes of the nearby Ben Cruachan. By the roadside at the entrance gates to Saint Conan's Kirk. This was the first memorial by Edinburgh sculptor Alexander Carrick after he returned in 1919 from serving in the Royal Garrison Artillery in Flanders. It features a powerfully carved figure of a Highland Infantryman which stands on a cairn constructed from boulders gathered from the slopes of Ben Cruachan by the Oban builder Mr. A. MacTavish. Before the war Carrick had carried out much of the stone carving in the kirk itself which is well worth a visit. The memorial was unveiled in July 1920 and the unveiling ceremony was covered in the Oban Times of Saturday July 17th 1920, Page 5, columns 3,4&5.
