Full Description

This monument, recorded by NOSAS in 2007 as part of the Scotland's Rural Past Project, is located close to the Lodge at the head of Loch Beannacharain.

400 A mortar bonded stone column, circular in plan, is situated on the crest of a prominent grassy knoll, at the west end of Loch Beannacharain. It is 2m in height and tapers towards the top where the capping stones are in the form of a mock castellation. Diameter at the top of the column is 1m and at the bottom 1.5m. There are 3 plaques recessed into the E, N and S sides - the largest on the east side is 0.75m x 0.35m and, under a small badge of an armoured arm with a fist clenching a broken lance, there is the inscription “John Fredrick Boyce Combe, CB D??, Major General Colonel, Hussars RS PAO, 12 July 1967”. The smaller plaques are 3.5m square, with the S one having the possible emblem of the Hussars embossed on it and the N one possibly that of the St Johns Cross.
