Commando Memorial, Spean Bridge

The Commando Memorial stands above Spean Bridge in the Scottish Highlands, with a commanding view across the former Commando Training Depot to the Nevis range of mountains. The memorial stands for the British Commando units who trained here in the Second World War, and was unveiled by the Queen Mother in 1952.

Travel recommendation for the mid-west of Scotland

I am often asked for ideas what to see and where to visit in Scotland. This route takes in many of my favourite spots in the west and centre of the country and is great for first-time visitors.
