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.

I’ve only been to Portree once and I mainly remember eating the best scallops I’ve ever tasted!
. Oh….I missed the scallops and I love them, especially with onion marmalade
