Photographic Survey (May 1962)

Photographic survey of buildings and sites in Inveraray and surrounding area, Argyll, by the Scottish National Buildings Record in 1962.

Field Visit (May 1986)

This 18th-century monument, which formerly stood in the garden of the Bank of Scotland, Church Square, Inveraray (NN 096083), was re-erected in 1983 in the policies of Inveraray Castle, 50m SE of the Garden Bridge (No. 267). Itis of chlorite-schist and measures about 3.5m in height, comprising a pillar 0.51m square set on a moulded pedestal with panelled sides and supporting a projecting cornice and an urn from which a ball-finial has been broken. Each face of the pillar bears a recessed round-headed panel, and those on the NE and SW faces contain an incised Latin inscription (en.1*) commemorating Colin, brother of Walter Campbell of Skipness, who 'with other adherents of evangelical religion and the liberty of the people' was executed in 1685 for supporting the 9th Earl of Argyll's rebellion. The monument was erected in 1754 by Colin Campbell's grandson Duncan, probably when the construction of the new town began on the former 'Gallows Foreland Point' (en.2).
