There should be a grave of an officer killed at Falkirk in 1746 in Easter Ross...

Colonel Monro was killed at Falkirk, 17th January 1746, and his body was brought to Novar for burial. The tombstone was supplied from the grounds of a neighbouring laird on the opposite side in politics. This gentleman, on being twitted by a friend for his inconsistency in erecting a monument to his political opponent, replied that he would be glad to lay tombstones over Novar and all of his way of thinking.

It appears that he was buried in Falkirk - the Parish Churchyard to be exact.

I have photos of his tomb (which I could have sworn I had already posted, but obviously not!)

Photos now posted, see: http://scottishwargraves.phpbbweb.com/viewtopic.php?p=21269#21269

I've added an addition to Ghostwhisperer's post (link in previous post) to show the inscription of the stone in Falkirk.
