Visited many times and at different times of year. Most atmospheric was early November, snow was on the surrounding hills, the sun was shining - the place just takes your breath away. The newer Remembrance Garden can bring you to tears if you let it - a very emotional place. An absolute must see place.

Since most of the tourists in the highlands pass this place when heading south west, one might as well stop here to remember all the bad things regarding war.

Recommend that anyone travelling through this area stop and view this monument. It does not take long and it is right on a main road. Beautiful views from the monument as well.

The monument is a great place to stop and stretch your legs and perhaps have a picnic as well. The monument and grounds are quite nice and your learn a bit of history of the commandos and training grounds. You also have a wonderful view of the landscape from this high point.

A beautiful place to reflect and remember those who have and are currently protecting our freedom and liberty! Plenty of parking and good access for people to come and pay their respect whilst taking in the magnificent views! Well worth a visit!

came across this by accident, just going for a scenic drive after dinner. It's a beautiful war memorial at a very scenic spot.

excellent place to visit nice views + a hidden bonus very near /opposite side of the road .a 1960's 3man nuclear bunker ( shame it's been neglected it would make a good attraction if it was looked after ..)
