A wonderful tribute to the old and the new Commandos who serve their country! It's a lovely place to come and consider what the Commandos do, and some of the sacrifices that they make. The family tributes are particularly moving!

We stopped to honor the Scotland Commando's. What a fitting tribute and monument. The dedications and plaques around the circle of dedication was memorable. Thank you for allowing us to honor you!!!

The 3 Commandos made out of bronze face south toward Ben Nevis and stand as a reminder of the thousands of men and officers of The Commandos who trained in the Spean-bridge area and who died in World War II. (1939-1945). “Lest we forget” There...More
