  Glenfinnan Monument
by sim1

Favorite thing:

A closer look at the monument. It is a tall column headed by a Highlander in full dress. You can climb this column, but unfortunately was closed when we where there.

The tower is now in the custody of the National Trust for Scotland and a Visitor Centre here (open April - October, tel/fax: 01397 722250) which tells the Prince's story.

I wish I could have climbed the tower. The view you must have from up there.... wow, that must be so great. Take a look at the next picture to see what the view is like from the ground, and imagine what it must be like from the tower......

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
