The David Stirling Memorial.  The David Stirling Memorial, sometimes also called the SAS Memorial, has stood since 2002 on the Hill of Row, near Sir David's ancestral home, looking towards the Perthshire mountains. The B824, from Doune to Junction 11 on the M9, runs past it, and as a result it is easy to find and visit.
