Stopped here on a beautiful sunny crisp Sunday morning. A cyclist was having a breather and cars came and went quietly. The monument is well maintained, powerful, Peaceful and very moving. We paid our respects and enjoyed the views.

As Americans, we're blessed with some of the most varied and amazing natural landscapes in the world. We (collectively) often forget that there are places which rival the top 'brand' names in natural beauty. The Commando Monument setting is breath taking and the reverence for the setting is incredible. HOWEVER, the journey here on a motor cycle or in a... More

A great little stop, to remember the Commandos, and to take in the great views. Gorgeous view of Ben Nevis when the sun came out just as we arrived. Wonderful historical monument to share with the kids, who are studying the wars at school this term.

Brought tears to our eyes. A very peaceful setting for these brave soliers. It was not something that was on our list but our B&B owner suggested a visit. He was correct. You will be impressed.

The monument is an impressive sight situated alone on high ground outside Spean Bridge. Well worth the trip even though out might take you a bit out of your way. There is a newer section dedicated to past members of the Commando. Far too many are young. A moving and thought provoking experience. hame that there is a sign forbidding... More

You can easily walk there from town. It is a good place for photography as well but best to schedule an early morning or late afternoon visit for optimal light. Overall a very "moving" destination to commemorate Commonwealth fallen soldiers. A half hour visit will be sufficient to appreciate this beautiful memorial.

To the 25,000 commandos - thank you. The memorial was a beautiful tribute to those who served in WWII plus those who followed
