Great history and great views
J P Temple (15 months ago)
Nice view and not too steep climb from car park in the woods
Chris Weatherburn (2 years ago)
Nice walk up a small hill with great views at the top. There is free parking close to the Scott Wilson sculpture and clear signs to find it.

A lovely walk, steep at times! But worth while when you get to the top, spectacular views over Angus. Has it's own Carpark. A must go.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
