Brass plaque from a sundial that once stood opposite the bank in Scarinish

Brass plaque on a wooden stand engraved with “Presented by F & I Gunnis, in memory of many happy days on Tiree, 1931”, which was once part of a sundial/weather vane encased in a glass box atop a concrete plinth. Mr & Mrs Gunnis donated the sundial/weathervane in 1931, where it stood on the side of the road, opposite the Bank in Scarinish until around 1950. Mr & Mrs Gunnis came on holiday to the Scarinish Hotel every year for many years in the 1920s and 1930s. Mr Gunnis had the shooting rights on Tiree.
