Glenfinnan Viaduct View Point
If you’re a bit of a Harry Potter fan (just like me ) then you really don’t want to miss seeing the Harry Potter Train, a.k.a “Hogwarts Express”, thundering along on your next trip to Scotland. You’ll need to head into the stunning Scottish Highlands and seek out the tiny village of Glenfinnan,…
For Harry Potter fans, see the viaduct where the Hogwarts Express was filmed. Also great views and the Glenfinnan Monument and visitor centre.
Famous from The Harry Potter films, beautiful viaduct and scenery. Take the famous Jacobite Train journey from Fort William to Mallaig and simply enjoy a great day out with regular stops to enjoy the scenery.
A great visit fir tourists to see the Harry Potter Bridge. Also to climb the Bonny Price Charles monument
Made famous by the Harry Potter series of films roughly 50 minutes drive from our cottage
“This is our favourite Glen around. Just enjoy the views as you drive right into the glen. ”
“I've twice been to Fort William and could not see the mountain. The third time I took a drive and found it! Having spoken to people who climbed it, they said it is straightforward, but a long climb up as it is from almost sea level. Dont attempt unless you have the correct footwear and rain, wind, and snow protection. There may also be no views with clouds.”
“Crafting whisky beneath Britain's highest mountain in Fort William since 1825”
“The commando memorial, is dedicated to the men of the original armed forces raised during the Second World War, is located 0.6 miles north of Masada ”
“Also know as Aonach Mor (the name of the mountain) this is one of my favourite places to ski in the winter and hill walk. The mighty Ben Nevis (UK's highest mountain) is its next door neighbour and I just love this place. The mountain gondola transports you to the top to access skiing in the winter, walking and mountain biking. If that all sounds a bit strenuous, then just go up for a bite to eat at the Snowgoose restaurant and admire the scenery. There's also a cafe at the base station too. It's a 1hr 45min drive from Inverness, but the journey - oh! You drive down through the Great Glen, past Loch Ness, Loch Oich and Loch Lochy - so although it's a wee bit of a haul, the scenery is breathtaking. I've done day trips to ski and walked here many, many times. You just have to get up early and get home late! A stop off in Fort Augustus for the best fish and chips is an added bonus.”
