Like something out of Lord of the Rings, this windswept desolation has stunning views across the battlefields of 1982.

This final stop in the battlefield tour is intense. Driving there is an adventure, and it is beautiful. However, when you get to the top of the Mount, you forget about the sights and focus on how hard it must have been to fight the war in 1982. The cold weather, the wind, the lack of experience. It is a... More

The battlefield has never been touched since the end of the war all those years ago. The relics of the battle are still visible, our guide was a local chap who had recorded some of the events of the invasion on his cassette recorder. Brought back a lot of memories from the news broadcasts I remember watching as a child.

I recently paid my respects at Mount Longdon, scene of some of the most intense fighting during the Falklands conflict back in 1982.

Mount Longdon overlooks Stanley and is steeped in history due to the battle that took place at this spot.

I have been lucky enough to spend a lot of time in the FI and Mount Longdon is just one of the experiences I shall take to my grave. 1982 could have been yesterday.

If you can get a good standard of Battle Field tour this is one of the most telling and poignant tales of the Falklands Conflict. Someone who has good military knowledge, preferably experience and can accurately set the scene, is essential for any civilian (like me) to attempt to understand what it must have been like. The battle lasted 12... More

I was there in 82, The place is well worth a visit to see and hear something of what happened up their. It was my wife's first visit and she was moved. The debris of battle still litters the place almost 30 years later
