A memorial in a dramatic Highland setting, unveiled by the Queen Mother in 1952, to all the officers and men of the commandos who gave their lives in the Second World War, and who trained in the moors and mountains nearby. A garden of remembrance was subsequently added, where veterans' ashes could be scattered. It is also used for those who died in more recent conflicts, for example the Falklands, Iraq and Afghanistan. The main monument depicts three WW2 Commandos in battledress, looking over the Nevis mountain range. The memorial receives thousands of visitors and is situated about a mile to the north west of Spean Bridge, at the junction of the A82 and B8004. There is parking.
