Rothes War Memorial
The War Memorial stands in Anvil Gardens, facing north-west.
It has a rectangular base on 3-stepped plinth. The carved panel has flat fluted pilasters either side of a central panel commemorating the dead of WWI. The block is topped by a pediment with scroll moulding, in turn surmounted by a round column with scroll capital on which is a seated unicorn bearing a shield. Resting on the lowest step of the plinth and inclined back against the memorial is a rectangular polished slab commemorating those lost in WWII.
The memorial was relocated from the junction of North Street and New Street in the early 1990’s because of road realignment.
