Wonderful location for a superb monument to true hero’s. The adjoining garden of remembrance is very moving and this site is well worth visiting. The whole area around the monument was beautifully kept so presumably someone looks after it. Large free car park on site...More

You are in the middle of nowhere and here is this monument. Sure there are other people around but the peace, scenery, makes you have to think. Try to imagine the training some of these guys went through up here. It's not always nice and...More

Short stop on our group tour to visit the monument and pay our respects. Very moving. Ben Nevis was beautifully framed in background.

This monument is a simple but poignant reminder of the Commandos, and in a wider sense all our armed forces, in the fighting arena. The memorial itself is impressive, the views alone make a stop worthwhile.

Viewing the statue of Commando soldiers and the surrounding memorial gardens for all soldiers is worthwhile. And it is in this area that commandos trained, in the Scottish Highlands, with the Ben Nevis mountain, Britain's tallest, in the background. Beautiful and rugged terrain. The Commando...More

This imposing monument overlooks the glens and hills where the Commandos did their training. There is ample car parking at the site.

Had been wanting to visit since reading the book "Commando Country" and was not disappointed! Very atmospheric setting which I felt strangely moving, well worth a visit.

Interesting bit of fairly modern history. There is also a touching memorial site alongside, not only for the commandos, but also for the fallen of more recent wars.

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.
