Very moving and well worth a visit. Parking and access good, and well maintained . Go early to avoid the many visitors arriving by the coach load!

I went for the history of the area and to see this world famous monument. It has been revamped to cater for more tourists and this is s positive as it allows Scottish history to be taken back to their own country. Down side is it is extremely busy and a lot of tourists disrespect the monument by climbing all... More

On the way to Inverness and just 20min outside fort William. This is a must stop over. The views are stunning the Commando monument thought provoking. There is also a small personal remembrance area that you can walk through. This is very emotional with small memorials to this from WW2 right to thus year and the Afghan conflict. Makes you... More

the views are beautiful. It is a lovely setting for a memorial to those who have lost their lives in battle, past and present.

A peaceful place to visit and remember those that have fallen in battle. Particularly relevant with the recent war memorials that have been on the TV. The views around the monument are spectacular. It was a little spoilt by a big coach full of people turning up, but you can't have these things to yourself :)

Every time I visit I find it a very moving experience, it is peaceful and tranquil, there is also a garden of remembrance which brings the futility of war into sharp focus.

It's well laid out and has excellent parking in what can be a bleak setting at times which better illustrates what those men went through. As well as the monument there are individual memorials to commandos who are no longer with us. I was disappointed to see a coach trip turn up and dash off the coach take a quick... More
