The Blantyre Monument in a field adjacent to Ferry Road on the way to Erskine, is in memory of Robert Walter Stewart, 11th Lord Blantyre, who lived at nearby Erskine House. A Major-General in the British Army, he served with the Duke of Wellington in the Napoleonic Wars. He survived the Peninsular campaign in Spain and Portugal where he displayed great bravery, but was accidentally killed by a stray bullet while caught in a street riot in Brussels in 1830. Held in high esteem by friends and colleagues who erected the towering monument in his memory.
