A sobering reminder to all those that gave their lives for us all. Overlooking stunning scenery that itself is as hard as it is beautiful.

There are many such monuments about which is great that these guys are remembered and appreciated. The significance of their pose is important, ie whether their heads and riffles are down or up.

If you are out this way this is a nice place to stop. There is a free carpark, great views and of course the statue as a memorial to Commandos. A little bit of history to be seen for unsung heroes.

Dedicated to the commandos who have fought for this country and is a wonderful monument originally opened by the Queen Mother. A small memorial garden is attached which is full of dedications to commandos over the ages. Very touching and moving site

It' slightly uphill from the car park, but if she takes it slowly and has help she should be ok. Failing that, the monument is fully visible from the car park.
