Fodor's Review

One of the most striking monuments in Britain, the Glenfinnan Monument commemorates the place where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard. The tower, which was built in 1815, overlooks Loch Shiel; note, however, that the figure on the top is a Highlander, not the Prince himself. The story of his ill-fated campaign is told in the nearby visitor center. You have to pay a small access fee when the center is open, but in truth it's just as picturesque when seen from the car park. The view down Loch Shiel from the Glenfinnan Monument is one of the most photographed in Scotland.
