Photo Friday: The Western Highlands, Scotland

We stayed in Spean Bridge on our road trip around Scotland, not for any other reason but that it was a strategic spot between Glencoe and the Isle of Skye.

Spean Bridge, ScotlandA mile above the cutesy town of Spean Bridge sits the Commando Memorial, honoring the soldiers’ lives who were lost during World War II.

Commando Memorial, ScotlandI can’t help but think this is a pretty excellent spot to rest permanently. The trio of commandos are depicted looking south toward Ben Nevis, the tallest “mountain” in the British Isles, and the monument is inscribed with: “United We Conquer.”
