Additional information: 

The monument to Malvina Wells is at the foot of a much larger one for the family she served, including her mistress Joanna Isabella Maclean (1815-1890), which depicts the head of Joanna's husband John Macrae, WS. The condition of the stone is such that it may have been erected some time after her death (to be verified).
