Lovely monument to our fallen hero's with possibly the best view of Ben Nevis weather permitting. My visit was only marred by a couch load of Chinese youths who decided to climb, scream and shout during their visit. I found this to be a little disrespectful as the location is also used as a memorial to kore recent fallen hero's... More

We were driving up to Ballachulish and had planned on stopping her because I had never actually seen the Monument close up and wanted to take photographs. The weather was wonderful for September, a bit hazy but that doesn't stop you in Scotland! The car park was almost full and there were a couple of coaches but despite the number... More

Although a mile or so outside the village of Spean Bridge, the walk to the monument also rewards you with some splendid views of the Nevis Range.

I was staying very nearby at Coinachan and felt compelled to take a short walk to this monument. Its position overlooking Spean Bridge is inspiring and it is easy to let your mind drift back and visualise the commandos marching in before starting their all too real training in the surrounding area.

Nice to see the statue and memorial for the people killed, and the messages from families. Statue of 3 soldiers, and memorial circle to look round.

Very inspiring atop a hill. You can walk there from Spean Bridge or stop as you drive from Spean Bridge to Invergarry

Situated just off main road it has plenty of free parking on site. Very moving site, lots of memorials to solders who lost their lives in recent conflicts.
