F31 Glenfinnan Monument 2no

GLENFINNAN monument is back to looking it’s best and ready for the summer following £170,000 of repairs, writes reporter Ellie Forbes.

Work started on the 200 year old structure, which commemorates the 1745 Jacobite rising, in April after decades of wind and water damage took its toll.

Funding from Historic Environment Scotland, the National Trust for Scotland’s Canadian Foundation and generous individual donors made the project to restore one of Lochaber’s most popular heritage sites possible.
