We visited the Viaduct in April just at the beginning of the tourist season. It was easy to find, well signposted. On a steep graveled path you can climb up to a viewpoint which was amazing. To see the snow covered mountain, the viaduct and the lake on the other side. There was a small gift shop on site wich... More

You can walk from the National Trust Centre under the viaduct and end up at the Glenfinnan railway station. Great views on the way as you climb well above the railway tracks. It is moderate walking with some stony sections and a small burn to cross.

We visited the Glenfinnan Viaduct at the beginning of April and it was spectacular! It was still pretty cold and there was snow on the hills all around. The views were beautiful. We parked at the National Trust building for the Glenfinnan Monument and walked along the road to a path that took you to the Viaduct. The walk was... More

I am biased, I love this bridge and Glenfinnan. When you get up close it has a really interesting appearance with the 118 year old concrete (still bearing the imprint of the wooden frames used to build it) ageing in its own unique way. I recommend walking up from the car park and then taking the hillside walk to the... More

The viaduct is famous, but you can see it from the monument tower very well. I would go there and skip this.

Ok, so we are a little bit old to be Harry Potter fans. Although we have watched the films with the family. Whilst visiting Scotland and in the area we thought we would pay a visit to the viaduct a featured in the films. Easy to get to by car although you cannot drive up to the viaduct itself the... More

Having done the Fort William to Malliag steam train , we had to stop here and see the viaduct from a different view. It's an amazing sight, the view of the loch in front of it is equally as amazing too, well worth stopping off and taking in the views

If your a Harry Potter fan and your in Scotland then this is a must see (And at least you can find it unlike Hagrids House). Massive arched train bridge? Whats not to like.

Since this viaduct is such a well-known icon from the Harry Potter film, it’s certainly worth a stop. Park in the little parking lot by the main road, and take a short walk on a small paved private road to the North (It’s obvious where to go). GPS coordinates: 56.871635,-5.437846. For the best view, go up the hill and under... More
