The next phase of work on the Commando Memorial site at Spean Bridge got under way last week with the monument, pictured, being covered in scaffolding and sheeting for the cleaning of the bronze statue and its stone plinth.

It is anticipated the cleaning work will take around two weeks. This will be followed by repairs to the flagstone area surrounding the memorial which will take a further three weeks.
