MACRAE

In the years before WWI Carrick was involved in the re-construction of the famous Eilean Donan Castle and in the late 30's was also commissioned for the celtic cross marking the grave of the man behind the restoration, Colonel MacRae Gilstrap.  Again this is a granite memorial and so was presumably carved by another mason.  The memorial stands in the Macrae Cemetery of Clachan Dhu, Shiel Bridge.

 

Anne Scott told me that during WWI when her father was home on leave he actually spent time at MacRae's request working on a fireplace in Eilean Donan.
