It's worth visiting as this is a memorial to some very brave men who have died for their countries over the years. The surroundings and beauty around the monument really make you feel for what they fought for. Definitely worth a visit if you are nearby.

It is just a statue. Nothing special. It is worth a stop only if you are passing by. There is a nice walk down to the spean river and to the old railway starting from the monument which is worth a visit. 1 hour lenght.

The monument is nice, but the views are really breathtaking. You can really see it all. It is a must visit place, especially if you use this fantastic route to get to the lochness lake. Just sit here for a while and enjoy it.

This memorial is well worth the stop if you are in the area, and well worth the detour if you are walking the GGW. The view of the surrounding hillsde is beautiful, and the memorial itself has touching momentos of commandos who have passed, including sadly too many from recent conflicts.

Spean Bridge Commando Monument near Fort William in the Highlands. We visited Fort William and seeing a BBC Top Gear film that filmed the monument, it was on my list of attractions to see when visiting Scotland. The monument as described in other reviews is dedicated to the soldiers during WW2 that trained in the area to become commando's. There... More

Spent about half an hour touring this fascinating memorial, situated in an isolated area outside Spean Bridge, which pays great tribute to the Commandos. Also at the memorial are some incredible views of the Nevis Range, best viewed on a dry day.

This was a beautiful monument set on a hill with breathtaking views. The Scots do love their memorials and it seems there were quite a few to visit. I did like this one.

I found it quite emotional to visit, as my Father was in 5 Troop, 6 Commando during WW2 and trained nearby. He landed with Lord Lovat on D-Day and the rest is history.

This monument is well worth a visit and it's beautifully sculpted and so life like. It is set in a lovely part of the countryside and very peaceful. You should also see the memorial site to the left hand side from the monument. It's for the fallen everywhere not just the UK and some of the memories are so poignant... More

Just 10 miles north of Fort William on A82, we stopped here to pay our Respect to the Soldiers on 16th Aug 2013. I have spent 24 years in Indian Air Force and being a Veteran, any thing to do with Defence Services, always attracts me. A very well kept place, with ample parking for Buses and Cars - the... More
