 Eilean Donan Castle

I am researching into the sculptor Alex Carrick who worked on the restoration of Eilean Donan. He also carved the celtic cross for the grave of Colonel MacRae Gilstrap. Firstly I would be grateful if anyone could let me know the location of the grave as I would like to photograph it next time I'm in the area. Secondly if anyone has any further information about the specific works carried out by Carrick in the castle I would be very interested to hear from them. The only specific information I have come across is that Carrick managed to carry out work on a lintel stone while home on leave during WWI.
Thanks in advance.

Colonel John MacRae-Gilstrap is buried at the Clachan Duich Graveyard very near Eilean Donan Castle on Loch Duich. The church is a ruin (the English burned it). I am sure that Mrs. J.D.H.MacRae (Marigold) of Inverness and of Eilean Donan would be glad to go over to Clachan Duich with you. I'v spent a lot of time in Scotland and it is one of my favorite spots. Mary Ann McRae
