The Buchanan Memorial
For a view of the structure from the other side, and for further information, see NS2683 : The Buchanan Memorial. The memorial is located within the kirkyard of NS2684 : Rhu Parish Church.

The plaque at the foot of the arch was placed there in 1981, and reads, in part: "here stood the second church of Row, built in 1763". The arch itself is a fragment of that earlier building.
