Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A gentle walk up to the memorial from Stonehaven. Very picturesque and tranquil. Perfect for what it is representing. Lest We Forget.

As war memorials go this is impressive. Rather than a wee statue in town this is a grand ring of stone - looking like a crown from a distance - visible n the headland over the village from miles around.

Worth the walk up there, and you can see the nearby castle and the coast for miles once there.

It's best visited as part of a walk from Stonehaven to Dunottar castle along the coastal clifftop path. Check on maps first and take good walking shoes. It has good views over (and along) the cliff coves to the North sea and towards Dunottar castle.

30mins walk, reasonably steep in parts but well paved and really worth it. Poignant as all memorials are, but has the added bonus of being on the way to Dunnottar Castle (another mile or so) which is clearly visible.

It’s taken me a long time to visit this after decades of seeing the memorial as I drive into Stonehaven. Well worth the trek, very moving and great views out to sea, over the toon and harbour,and the castle.

Amazing monument to the fallen.

Quite a tough walk to get there though, must be a challenge for some who wish to pay their respects.

I almost feel guilty writing a review of a war memorial but once in a while something is so memorable that you just have to say something. As a testament to the loss of so many this is so right. It is not a tourist sightseeing location but somewhere you can go and contemplate the sacrifice of others. I found the design memorable, the location outstanding and the experience humbling.

Having lived in Stonehaven 27 years, it was time to finally walk up to the War Memorial! Beautiful day and 360 degree views of Stonehaven town, Dunnottar Castle, the caves on the coast line, Stonehaven Harbour and beyond. Anyone who comes here expecting some all singing all dancing attraction (like some of the reviewers!) will probably never quite appreciate the untouched nature of the Mearns Coast line, the elegant yet humble structure that was erected in memory of all who fell in the First and Second World War. This area is relatively accessible for a disabled person though there is a gradient, just be prepared for loose gravel.
Any further along the path to Dunnottar Castle was (for me, a crutch user) too inaccessible. For us, the most disappointing aspect was the large group of loud American visitors who chose to use this humble piece of land as a picnic zone and allowed their kids to clamber all over a memorial to the dead as they tried to find their frisbee. That (to us) was the only disappointing aspect. Anybody expecting anything spectacular must remember, the key is in the name, please enjoy this monument with respect for those who died for the freedom of others, please don't go there is you expect to be "entertained".
