Have visited the monument and loch side many times before, but this was the first time I had walked up to get a closer look and photos of the Viaduct. Very interesting. Had just missed The Jacobite steam train passing, though many tourists had been successful judging by the number of visitors passing us on their way back to car... More

The monument is not really high, but to climb to the top is an adventure somehow, mainly because of the hole through which you get to the top - it's very small actually! The guide was nice, but to be honest could be hardly heard because of the strong wind, and he himself was speaking very quietly. The views -... More

When you're travelling through the many sights in the highlands this might not be on your path but it's worth the detour. A nice walk, passing the Glenfinnan Viaduct to the incredible view of the Monument looking over the loch. It would have been better if the sun was shining but that can't always be helped in Scotland

Fortunate to visit on a clear, sunny day. There is no other view like it in Scotland. Walk up under the viaduct is lovely and a must for Harry Potter fans!

A lovely lake, a tower with a statue of bonnie Prince Charlie, a small walk up a small hill for a great view of the lake, tower and a view of the viaduct also called the Harry Potter bridge, all are in one spot at Glenfinnan along the motor way. Surely worth stopping by

Glorious location in the Scottish Highlands. The site of the raising of the standard for Bonnie Prince Charlie's Jacobite rebellion. Nice little National Trust gift shop and tea room to while away an hour or two soaking in the atmosphere. There is a little uphill path to the side of the tea shop which can be a bit slippery if...

As a local. The first thing that shocked me was that visitors were being charged to park their car, when it always was free. My friend and I decided to go into the cafe for afternoon tea. There was no heating on and it felt cold. The atmosphere was non-existent. Most of the tables have high stool seating, which is... More

This was a really nice and interesting visit, very informative and could have spent hours in the display, unfortunately the weather was poor and as I have mobility problems I didn't go out to the actual monument but it was still lovely and look forward to visiting again and actually getting to the monument.
