When I was hiking in the highlands of Scotland, I did two of the national trails: the West Highland Way and the Great Glen Way. While on the Great Glen Way I stopped at the Commando Memorial, which is set against the glorious background of Ben Nevis. It's about 17 ft. tall and was unveiled in 1952 by the Queen Mother.
I also passed by Achnacarry Castle, seat of Clan Campbell, and used during the war as a training center for the British Commandos. Part of the hiking trail was used in training, with the men having to complete the distance in a certain amount of time while carrying all their equipment. Any who couldn't complete this- or other- training exercises were told to hop the train and return to their regiments. Only the best completed the training. During the war, 1700 Commandos lost their lives; eight were awarded the Victoria Cross.
