Kirkton of Glenisla is a village in Glen Isla, Angus, Scotland.[1][2] It is situated on the River Isla, eleven miles north-west of Kirriemuir and ten miles north of Blairgowrie, on the B951 road. The village consists of a church and graveyard, a hotel, and several holiday cottages. The village is situated adjacent to the 64 mile waymarked Cateran Trail. There is a suspension footbridge that was built in 1824 over the River Isla.[3]

The Small Monument[edit]

The Patrick Small Monument is located across the ford on the west bank of the River Isla opposite the Kirkton of Glenisla village. This imposing obelisk stands on elevated ground and can be seen from around the village. Erected by the community, it stands in honor of Patrick William Small, a local land owner who died in 1870.
