VERY POIGNANT MEMORIAL

It seems impossible to pass Spean Bridge without stopping as a tribute. This is a very special, poignant place indeed.

Great place to stop for views of the Nevis Range. The monument is interesting but the inscription is hard to read, there could be more there to explain the importance of the area in training and the sacrifice these men made and make today.

This monument serves to remind everyone of the lives lost by commandos and soldiers throughout history in protecting our land, The garden of remembrance also reminds us that soldiers still serving to-day are losing their lives for us.

This iconic memorial is well worth a visit. The views are fab especially when the hills as covered with snow as they are at the moment. I did not expect to find it so moving especially the memorials to young soldiers lost in combat.
