The Wigtownshire Free Press (27/1/1916) reported the death of Robert Morland: Private Robert Morland, 2nd Battalion, Scots Guards, died at his home at Glasnick Crossing Cottage. Private Morland joined the Army shortly after the outbreak of war. Having been invalided home, he lay very ill for a long time before his death. He was buried at Glenluce Churchyard.

[Note: It appears that CWGC record him as Morlan but this article, and the photograph of his grave, indicate he was Morland]

Mike - this guy caused a lot of hassle a while ago.
He was a "non-Comm" see http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/warmemscot-ftopic6406.html&highlight=morlan

My last posting there said:
Just to explain my concern about the family name. Robert (of the Scots Guards) was recorded just about everywhere as MORLAN. However newspaper reports of his death also use MORLAND and he is listed on the Kirkcowan WM as Morlan but on the (next door) Penninghame WM as Morland.

His father (also Robert) at various stages is recorded as MORLAN and, as on the gravestone, as McMORLAND.
It was only by tracking the family through from the 1880's that we were sure that this was the same man.
