From his tombstone in Ecchelfechan churchyard:

DR. ARNOTT WAS FOR MANY YEARS SURGEON OF THE 20TH FOOT AND SERVED IN EGYPT AT MAIDA, WALCHEREN, THROUGHOUT THE PENINSULAR WAR AND IN INDIA. AT ST. HELENA HE WAS THE MEDICAL ATTENDANT OF NAPOLEON BONAPARTE, WHOSE ESTEEM HE WON AND WHOSE LAST MOMENTS HE SOOTHED. THE REMAINDER OF HIS MOST USEFUL AND EXEMPLARY LIFE HE SPENT IN THE RETIREMENT OF HIS NATIVE PLACE, HONOURED AND BELOVED BY ALL WHO KNEW HIM.
