A wonderful piece of history set in a lovely area. We visited the monument a day after climbing Ben Nevis in August 2012. Truly worth the effort visiting if you have some time to spare.

This is truly a beautiful and tranquil place with views to match. The monument is well cared for, and easy to find being well signposted. The only downside to this is that coaches tend to arrive frequently and suddenly the place is packed with people who don't appear to have any reverence or sense of the reason for the monument....

Having read other comments about this very moving place I feel it is best summed up by Jules 858. It was a moving experience to read the letters and view the photos of the fallen from Scotland. The weather was superb and with the vast views all around it was haunting. "The Commando Monument and the area of remembrance alongside... More

On a pleasant summers' evening we went on a lovely walk of approx. 90 minutes from Spean Bridge to the Commando Monument and back.

The Commando Monument and the area of remembrance alongside is... More
