Very beautiful memorial Ina beauitufl location - that perfect place to sit and think! Bring a camera as the scenery is breathtaking- although don't know why your not allowed dogs there? Strange!

Set in a magnificent position, this bronze monument is one of the most moving I have seen. I bought a small booklet in Fort William before visiting as I knew there was nothing at the actual site. I would recommend reading something about how the area was used for commando training first to put it all into perspective. There are... More

Situated on top of a mountain, the history of this is very moving, I felt humbled standing in front of this monument.

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

We arrived here late on Remembrance Sunday by coincidence rather than by design. 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.
