Back to Ben Lomond

National Memorial Park

The landscape around Ben Lomond was officially designated a war memorial in 1995, and is dedicated to all those who have fallen in conflict. The National Memorial Landscape includes the land in the care of the National Trust for Scotland, and the adjacent land in the care of Forestry and Land Scotland, which totals approximately 4,000 hectares.

Loch Lomond and mountains in the distance, seen through the centre of the Ben Lomond Memorial sculpture. The sculpture is a granite ring, with a triangle shape at the bottom.

The aims of the Ben Lomond National Memorial Park are to enhance the landscape and nature conservation value of the area; to provide access for quiet recreation and contemplation; and to recognise the social and economic needs of those who live and work in the area.

A 3m-high circular stone and granite sculpture, designed by Scottish artist Doug Cocker, stands by the lochside at a scenic viewpoint, just a short walk from the Rowardennan car park. It frames fellow Munro Ben Vorlich (985m) beautifully!
