Notes: This is not such an old stone compared to the other tabletop stones found in this graveyard.
Allan who erected the stone was a well to do man. He lived in Scarinish and for many years had tenancy of the Scarinish Hotel. Allan ferried rocks from Mull for 7 years, for the Skerryvore Lighthouse so would have met and possibly knew the stonemasons who may have made this stone for him as it has a style of the stonemasons stones that can be seen at Soroby.
Skerryvore was built in the 1840’s so if these dates of death are correct, and they may not be as they are very hard to read this stone was erected at least 20 years after his parents death.
Notes: Tapered slab 1.82cm long and 0.41 m wide at the head very worn. It has a double scroll moulding round the edge. At the top of the stone there is a label for an inscription now no longer visible and underneath, a galley with a furled sail. The rest of the decoration consists of a centrally placed sword with irregular knot work in the spaces above the quillions, and double plant scrolls on either side of the blade. The sword has a lobated pommel and short inclined quillions, so is not a claymore. Iona School 14th
