I had to walk all the way from the Woolen mill but the weather was terrific and I enjoyed it. At the monument itself, I got incredible views of ben nevis , aonach mor and other mountains.It is defiinitely the highlight of my stay at Fort william. There are also nearby walks .

If you are in this part of the worth it's definitely worth stopping by this monument and paying your respects.... There's not much to do but soak up the atmosphere and admire the stunning scenery. Taking time to read the tributes of those who have died will bring a tear to even the hardiest of people. It's not an exciting... More

As we looked at this monument against a dark and heavy sky a chink of light came through the clouds and flooded the monument with light. It was such a rare moment that few of us ever see. The base of the monument was covered in wreaths... More

Having been here many years ago we recently popped in to the Memorial to ponder and remember those we have lost in conflict. The extension section to the left of the car park area is dedicated to those more recent actions in Falklands, Iraq, Afghan etc... and upon walking round this section it is so moving because of the poignant...

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.
