An important site during the last days of the Falklands Conflict, Sgt Ian McKay won a Victoria cross on this mount. Today it is a place of quiet reflection and memorial.

Mount Longdon is a must for any visitor to the Falklands. It is surrounded by memories so please respect the fallen when you visit.

An interesting trip to retrace where our troops fought back in 1982. Very open and bleak landscape and would not have like to have been there during that time of the year.

Its history is riveting, the battle fought there intense and tragic. The relics of war still remain. We found the climb even to the lower reaches very moving. What a desolate, sad place, yet the scene of such courage ...

For a taste of what Falklands battlegrounds were like, this is the place. You can easily retrace the steps of the British troops as they stormed the top... it's quite a hike so take your time and wear proper footware and a warm jacket (wind)....More
