|The 12, 370 acre Rowardennan home was originally bought (instead of demise responsibilities) for the nation in 1950 making use of money from the National Land Fund.
the NLF was in fact setup in 1946 by Labour politician Hugh Dalton to get land and home for nation as a memorial for people who had died within the 2nd World War.
Sadly by the time this estate was purchased the politics associated with the country had altered and in place of this land being used by ordinary men and women the land was presented with to the Scottish office just who immediately gave it up to the Forestry Commission.

In 1953 the forests became an element of the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park
In 1995 the Forestry Commission marketed a large the main property into the National Trust and a cooperation was formed along with the after that Scottish office to manage the property the country.
Eventually after 45 many years the land would definitely be utilized with the objective it absolutely was bought for in 1950.
For reasons uknown it needed to be purchased once again however in addition to nationwide history Memorial Fund (which changed the NLF in 1980) purchased the Rowardennan home for an additional time for country.
In 1996 the estate ended up being rebranded the Ben Lomond National Memorial Park and had been a memorial to all the those who passed away in the Second World War. (I'm not sure when it is for Scots, Britons or all lifeless, and I also've see clearly includes WW1 too but because of the NLF cash was for WW2 lifeless We have my doubts about it commemorating the initial World War)
