Artist's Description

Standing in the pretty village of Dalmeny, the village war memorial is constructed in the style of a ‘mercat cross’, and so is a focus of attention with added significance, set at the centre of the Village Green.

Dalmeny is a planned village on the Dalmeny Estate, to the east of South Queensferry and west of the city of Edinburgh close to the A90 road approaching the Forth Bridge. Its fine 12th century Norman church and stone built cottages were built around a square, the whole village now being designated a Conservation Area.

The name Dalmeny is of Scottish Gaelic origin, being now Dail Mheinnidh or Dail M’Eithne in the modern language.This may refer to an ancient ecclesiastical settlement, dedicated to an obscure (female) saint Eithne.
