The Chisholm Stone, a memorial by the roadside near Mauld.

The inscription reads:
W.C. & C.F.
Mo rn geal g

It is in memory of William Chisholm, who lived in a cottage near here with his wife, Christina Ferguson. He was the standard bearer for the chief of Clan Chisholm, and left to fight at the Battle of Culloden, where he was killed.
In his memory Christina composed the Gaelic lament "Mo Rn Geal g" (My Fair Young Love). LinkExternal link
