SCOTTISH MEMORIAL CAIRN

The creation of this Cairn is a memorial to all persons of Scottish descent that have contributed to the development of Inverell and District.

The Cairn features four compass point basalt rocks taken from the site of the first store built in Inverell by Mr. Colin Ross in 1850.

The structure on which this plate is mounted contains two ancient building stones sourced from the site of the new Scottish Parliament House in Edinburgh.

This project was a joint effort by the Inverell Scottish Association, Inverell Shire Council and Community.
