The monument, just off the A82 north of Fort William, has a commanding view of the Nevis range and is set in the midst of the Commandos training ground. It is a very impressive memorial to those who served their country in this way.

A monument, seen in the picture, and some personal messages and memorial stones in a separate area for fallen Commandos. Very touching, and a special place for all Royal Marines and their families.

It' slightly uphill from the car park, but if she takes it slowly and has help she should be ok. Failing that, the monument is fully visible from the car park.
