World War 2 Tribute in Fort William
Stand before the Commando Memorial, which looks out onto the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. Representing the Commandos unit in World War 2 established by Winston Churchill, the memorial stands over 5 metres high, and honours the men that lost their lives in the war. See this fantastic tribute in person, by heading to Spean Bridge Village in the beautiful Fort William region of the West Highlands.
After learning about the history of the area, you can test your mettle up against Ben Nevis, by planning a day of mountain climbing. Or if you aren’t too keen on all that hiking, take the sky gondola up to Aonach Mor and see this fantastic landscape from on high.
