Fort William War Memorial is a lovely memorial to warriors of the past. It is a rally nice touch and is kept tidy by those who care. It's worth a visit if you are in the area.

Well-kept, simple memorial to soldiers and sailors of Fort William and Scotland. It’s in a small park/square area near the local church and you’ll easily see it when walking thru town.

Looks to have had a recent clean and treatment. Set in a nice piece of park garden in the town centre. A fitting tribute to our fallen.

This is a well kept and respected war memorial in the grassed square in Fort William. It certainly brought home the immense loss suffered by a small community especially in the first world war and offers a fitting memorial to them.
