We visited the monument on a stunningly beautiful, sunny day. Views from the monument site are spectacular and, although busy, there is still a feeling of calm and space. The monument itself is evocative and a fitting tribute to those who trained in the area. The separate memorial field monument is new since my last visit and offers opportunity to... More

Came upon this by chance - but glad we did - not only a memorial to the past, as families had left tributes to those they had lost in recent conflicts

Great view, beautiful landscape and monument. I don't remember seeing toilets facilitates or restaurants around, so if you go there be prepared.

Stunning monument where the commandos depicted gaze out over of view worthy of their sacrifices. A really moving experience - yet not an unhappy place - and well worth the stop to reflect and count your own blessings.

I'm not sure if I had forgotten it existed or that I never knew. Recently on route to Skye from Perth I stopped here with my father. The sight itself is worth a visit. On a clear day this spot gives beautiful views and the chance to see Ben Nevis. It is a calm and tranquil spot. The monument itself... More

The statue is impressive but it is the view that is spectacular. It is a pull off from the road and only takes a few minutes but worth the short stop.

Difficult to describe a monument to very brave and courageous Commandos. The location is superb. But I'll not say more. It is a war memorial, and should be respected as that. The nearby space for more recent tributes is moving and thought provoking.

When you visit, it's usually by car, you look out over 360o views and marvel. Imagine, you're the first soldiers to be taken to this apparently God forsaken mountainous wilderness and trained in the art of survival, kill or be killed, catch your enemy training, and you get a tiny glimpse of where the Commandos began. It is a truly... More

A beautiful setting overlooking Ben Nevis and the other mountains in the Nevis Range. Not far from Spean Bridge and definitely walkable (about 2 miles away)
