Cameronians' Regimental Memorial
Cameronians' Regimental Memorial, taken 2 years ago
Memorial to the Lanarkshire county regiment, the Cameronians, who were disbanded on this spot on 14 May 1968, within a mile from where they were raised on 14 May 1689.

A curious episode in British press coverage of the Cameronians before their disbandment cast a shadow over their reputation by conferring on them the undeserved nickname "poisoned dwarfs". LinkExternal link
