Keiss War Memorial

Keiss is in Sutherland, Scotland, on the A99 between Wick and John O’Groats. The War Memorial stands a bit away from any houses in a square plot of land beside the road.

Keiss War Memorial, Sutherland

It is inscribed, “Keiss Quoad Sacra Parish. The dedication is “To the memory of the fallen in the Great War 1914-1919,” and towards the base, “Also 1939-1945,” below which are six names for that second conflict. You can also see here that flat, almost treeless, landscape of north-east Sutherland, which acts as a kind of preview for Orkney:-
