Loch Ness John Cobb Memorial

The cairn by Loch Ness was built by the people of Glen Urquhart with a bronze plaque by George Bain. The inscription reads, On the waters of Loch Ness John Cobb, having travelled 206 m.p.h. in an attempt to gain the world's water speed record, lost his life in this bay, Sept. 29th, 1952. This memorial is erected as a tribute to the memory of a gallant gentleman by the people of Glen Urquhart. Urram do'n treun Agus do'n iriosal. Honour to the valiant And to the humble.
