Special monument to the Scottish commandos dead in service. Nice area and spectacular sights. If you are in the area is a good place to go.

My boyfriend and I found the monument very moving and a worthwhile visit. There is a lovely walk from Spean Bridge through the forest, past the old railway line and up to the monument: http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/fortwilliam/commando-memorial.shtml Tip: there is a donation box for upkeep of the monument, be sure to contribute!

It's worth visiting as this is a memorial to some very brave men who have died for their countries over the years. The surroundings and beauty around the monument really make you feel for what they fought for. Definitely worth a visit if you are nearby.

It is just a statue. Nothing special. It is worth a stop only if you are passing by. There is a nice walk down to the spean river and to the old railway starting from the monument which is worth a visit. 1 hour lenght.

The monument is nice, but the views are really breathtaking. You can really see it all. It is a must visit place, especially if you use this fantastic route to get to the lochness lake. Just sit here for a while and enjoy it.

This memorial is well worth the stop if you are in the area, and well worth the detour if you are walking the GGW. The view of the surrounding hillsde is beautiful, and the memorial itself has touching momentos of commandos who have passed, including sadly too many from recent conflicts.

Spean Bridge Commando Monument near Fort William in the Highlands. We visited Fort William and seeing a BBC Top Gear film that filmed the monument, it was on my list of attractions to see when visiting Scotland. The monument as described in other reviews is dedicated to the soldiers during WW2 that trained in the area to become commando's. There... More
