The Mercat Cross of Portree, Isle of Skye

Scroll down to content


While looking back through some photos, I found that I had taken this photo of the War Memorial in Portree on the Isle of Skye last year.  Its not a true Market/Mercat Cross, but I think it deserves a place in my Market/Mercat Collection.

The Portree war memorial is a Mercat Cross style memorial constructed of freestone with grey granite column crowned with a lion and grey granite panels bearing the commemoration and names set into the faces of the monument.
