A large stone monument set into the cliff on the sea front. A seated male figure representing peace and victory is above the inscription. The memorial was described by the 'Northern Scot' in 1922: 'The body of the memorial, which is built into a part of the rock opposite the station, is constructed of polished freestone from Greenbrae with a heavy moulded base about 12 feet wide. It is surmounted by an entablature upon which a bronze panel with the names of the fallen inscribed is affixed. A bronze figure representing 'Victory and Peace' rests on the top. In his left hand is a sword pointing downwards. Both arms rest on the entablature'. The memorial originally recorded the names of those killed in the First World War and Second World War names were added at a later date.
