The Commando Monument just north of Spean Bridge is a large three-figure bronze statue commemorating the service and sacrifice given by thousands of Allied troops during the Second World War.
It is a place where history was made and today the Monument is a place of reverence and respect, located in a stunning location overlooking Ben Nevis and the Mamore mountains.
In the village of Achnacarry some six miles from the monument is a Commando Museum which has a lot more information and artifacts on the Commandos and is well worth visiting.
Each year on Armistice Sunday a memorial service is held around the monument attended by veterans and their families, together with respectful locals and visitors.
