Copland's Monument

A modest monument on the northern slopes of Upper Barnsnaught in NE Dumfries and Galloway, Copland's Monument remembers John Copland of Minnygap, who was killed here by a lightning strike on the 20th July 1803 while tending his sheep. The monument is around 1.2m (4 feet) in height and comprises a square stone column on a pedestal, topped by a lichen-covered pyramid.
