This monument serves to remind everyone of the lives lost by commandos and soldiers throughout history in protecting our land, The garden of remembrance also reminds us that soldiers still serving to-day are losing their lives for us.

This iconic memorial is well worth a visit. The views are fab especially when the hills as covered with snow as they are at the moment. I did not expect to find it so moving especially the memorials to young soldiers lost in combat.

Visited on a very rainy day, which didn't put me off, as it is set in beautiful countryside views. Wheelchair accessible, but a bit of a slope. A very moving monument, especially if you have visited the commando museum prior to this, as I did. There is also a beautiful memorial garden next to it. Very busy despite the awful... More

With Ben Nevis majestically standing guard, you can't help but be extremely moved by the beauty and poignancy of the Commando Monument.

Excellent memorial with stunning background scenery. Placed at top of hill on way to Anacharry from Spean Bridge with information boards dotted along route covering the Commando training from WWII. Well worth a visit if in the area.

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
