This powerful monument to our fallen commandos remains as poignant as ever. The statue itself is truly well placed in this magnificent but wild, high terrain of mountain and majestic skies. Ensure you also visit the memorial circle where the individual soldiers and marines are remembered, often with short messages that should touch us all.

Seeing the monument, reading the inscription and then standing looking at the view in front of the snow covered Munros above Fort William was very humbling. We also drove up to Auchnacary, saw several stags eating by the road. Great drive.

Good views and a walk but no dogs allowed which is ridiculous - such an area of natural beauty but if you want a good dog walk avoid. Plenty of free car parking

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 .
