The Commando Memorial

The Commando Memorial is a Category A listed monument not far from Fort William and is dedicated to the men of the original British Commando Forces raised during World War II. Its situation overlooks the training areas of the Commando Training Depot established in 1942 at Achnacarry Castle. It is one of Scotland's best-known monuments.

This Memorial stands some 17ft or 5.2m high and comprises a group of three bronze commandos dressed in typical World War Two uniforms and equipment including cap comforters, ammunition pouches and weapons. They are looking south towards Ben Nevis. A large inscription on the plinth just beneath their feet reads "United We Conquer", while the plaque on the front of the plinth reads: "In memory of the officers and men of the commandos who died in the Second World War 1939–1945. This country was their training ground."
