Gravestone

Major General Sir Hector Archibald MacDonald

The bust, decorated with a tartan scarf, ribbon and white heather, when I photographed it in July 2010, is on a large monument to Major General Hector Archibald MacDonald and other members of his family.

 

Update

Sir Hector

Sir Hector was a distinguished Victorian soldier.  He was also known as 'Fighting Mac'.
