Eilean Donan Castle - WWI War Memorials.
-
There is a War Memorial at the North side of the castle
Approx. NG 88117 25867
There is an artillery piece at each side and a plaque commemorating Lt. Col. John McCrae.
-
There is a brass plaque inside the castle commemorating a RFC officer but was not allowed to photograph it.
-
Also there is a WWI memorial room with Parish of Lochalsh Roll of Honour, Parish of Kintail (Parish Church of Dornie) Roll of Honour, Parish of Glenshiel Roll of Honour and Parish of Kintail Roll of Honour. These not photographed because photography is not allowed in the castle.
