Glenfinnan monument needs support - both money and physical!

Its one of the most striking areas in the West Highlands and an easy 30 minute drive from Spean Bridge and Fort William but the monument at Glenfinnan is leaning over.

The problem has been known about for years and its due to the tower being built on the sandy/silty soil next the loch.

Of course the viewpoint is also a dramatic place to watch the Jacobite steam train travel over the viaduct used in the Harry Potter films .

The National Trust are now is seeking financial support to carry out works to rectify the issue.

This is a short video we made from the top of the monument in 2010 which shows the spectacular views.

 Cruise ships making more of a mark in 2016 in Loch Linnhe, Fort William?

Will this have any benefits for the rural villages outside Fort William such as Spean Bridge, Roy Bridge, Invergarry or Onich?
