The monument to commemorate the battle of Glen Fruin 415 years ago has been repaired and restored. The work involved the removal of most of the shrubs and trees, partly to make access easier, and partly to improve the visibility of the monument from the road. In addition, steps were built up from the road to the monument, with a handrail alongside them.
