Worth a visit just to make you realise what should never be forgotten . So emotional to see the garden of remembrance and see the tragic loss of lives both old and young from current and past wars .

Impressive monument to the many who sacrificed so much, and to make you reflect on what you take for granted every day.

Lovely kept place , quite bleak. Good size car park, it's worth looking at the private memorial area, it's very sad..... Would recommend a visit to this place.

On top of a hill overlooking the valley below, this striking monument makes you appreciate the sacrifices of these heros who were commandos

Easily found off the A82 road to Spean Bridge, it was on my list to visit and so worth it ! As the Commando Basic Training Centre was set up only 6 miles away from this monument ( Achnacarry Castle) it is a fitting location...More

To see the names and life spans of these men who have fought so we may live is very moving. From 20 year olds in recent battles to old timers from previous wars, wow, how emotional.

A great view c as n be found here and the monument is certainly memorable, especially on days with better weather and blue skies above.

The commando memorial is a great place to break up a journey on the A82. Beautiful views and a nice memorial to the commandos. Very worth a short visit.

My 80yr old father in law had always wanted to visit this memorial and in his words it's the location that is a perfect respectful tribute. The small tribute family area is also very well maintained and respectful.

It' slightly uphill from the car park, but if she takes it slowly and has help she should be ok. Failing that, the monument is fully visible from the car park.
