Hillfoots War Memorials

Hillfoots War Memorials

At least one World War I memorial can be found in each Hillfoots town.

The main ones at Alva and Menstrie are situated within public parks.

Those at Coalsnaughton and Muckhart are also in public spaces, the former next to the community centre and the latter in a small area beside the main road, close to the Coronation Hall.

The World War I memorial at Tillicoultry is located within the cemetery, with a semicircle of headstones placed around it, each commemorating a soldier from World War II.

The main memorial at Dollar can be found within the grounds of the Academy. On it are the names of 179 men, and one woman, who died in the war. 161 of these are known to have been pupils at the school. Some of them were from outside the Hillfoots area. One panel on the Academy memorial gives the names of fourteen men who were from the Parish of Dollar. Most of these are thought not to have attended the school. Three members of staff are also named on the memorial.
