Stonehaven War Memorial at Black Hill

Located on Black Hill, a half-mile (1 km) to the southeast of Stonehaven and overlooking Strathlethan Bay is Stonehaven's War Memorial. The grand structure was built in the years after the First World War, in the form of a round classical temple, and unveiled in 1923. The memorial was designed by local architect John Ellis (1874 - 1929) to look unfinished, symbolising incomplete lives of those who died. The memorial was later augmented with the names of the dead from the Second World War.
