Why not? All is so close in the area. So worth a stop while driving along. Not worth a major detour.

On the crossroads - you cannot miss it. Poignant for those of Scottish background. Parking is on the road side, so an organised tour may be better.

A small Quiet corner dedicated to the men of the Black Watch who lost their lives in the war. It was nice to see benches donated from local councils Angus Fife Perthshire and Tayside.

Quite how you make something so impactive and still so sensitive, despite its size.
Such bravery. So many killed.

We learned so much thanks to our very knowledgeable guide. The area has been sensitively preserved and still holds danger for those looking after the many visitors who may not comprehend the risks still lingering in the lands.
