Fodor's Expert Review Glenfinnan Monument

Glenfinnan Free

One of the most striking monuments in Britain, this 1815 tower overlooking Loch Shiel commemorates the place where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard. 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. The view down Loch Shiel from the Glenfinnan Monument is one of the most photographed in Scotland.
