Description

Ashlar-faced tree with scars from the lopping of branches. A finely modelled serrated parapet sits at the top of the trunk, surmounted by a 3-column Roman Doric rotunda. This once bore a single Roman Doric capped by an urn, though this has now fallen onto the ground below. The monument was probably erected by Sir Evan John Murray MacGregor, whose family emblem was the tree.
