Portskerra: the Drowning Memorial
Portskerra: the Drowning Memorial
This memorial stands to commemorate those whose lives were lost in three tragedies off the coast here. The names are listed, in the three panels on the large stone to the left, and it is notable that many shared surnames with one another. The poignant phrase "...those who perished within sight of their homes" accentuates the loss the community would have felt.

A close-up of the stone is here: NC8865 : Portskerra: names of those who perished in sight of their homes.

The stone nearest us contains a four-point compass.
