ABERFELDY WAR MEMORIAL

Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2004

Aberfeldy, the capital of Breadalbane, is situated on the banks of the River Tay and the Moness Burn, about seven miles downstream of Loch Tay. The war memorial arch leads to the wooded defile known as the Birks of Aberfeldy. The names for both wars are listed on each support of the arch. As yet the memorial has not been transcribed; anybody wishing to do so will be welcome.
