Here lyes interred the body of Sir ROBERT MUNRO of Foulis
Knight & Baronet, colonel of a Regiment of Foot
The life he had spent in the Parliament and Camp with honour
He lost in the cause of Liberty and Religion near Falkirk XVII of January MCCCXL aged LXII (17th January 1746 aged 62)
As long as History narrates the Battle of Fontency, his courage and conduct that day in the command of the Highland regiment will be remembered.
Sincere and active in the service of his friends,
humane and forgiving to his enemies, generous and benevolent to all,
His death was universally regretted even by those who new him
With Sir Robert Munro was killed his brother
Doctor DUNCAN MUNRO of Obsdale? aged LIX (59)
Who unarmed would not forsake his wounded brother.





Opposite side of Memorial has (presumably) the same inscription in Latin.



Renewed by Mary Seymour Munro of Fowlis in 1848
As a tribute of respect to the honoured memory of her Great Grandfather & Uncle.


1972 Restored by Captain Munro of Foulis and Colonel Monro of Auchenbowie
With the help of The Clan Munro Association, The Corporation of Falkirk and The Black Watch.
