The monument is in a spectacular location but takes about 5 minutes to walk round. you can pay to go up the monument but we decided not to bother as it was very busy. There is a exhibition on the visitors centre which tells you about the monument. Worth doing this and the Viaduct at the same time.

Amazing views around this historical monument. It's worth exploring the history of the place prior the visit to fully enjoy the experience.

The car park and visitor centre are on the opposite side of a very busy road to the monument itself and there is no pedestrian crossing here. The day we visited, we could barely get into the car park (which is meant to be a pay car park) as it was full of people using it as a car park... More

Setting and history bring the monument to life. In poor weather (as when we visited) the whole area and historical relevance has a presence about it.

Traveled there to see one of the historic sites in Scotland. Very beautiful location and very touching memorial of Bonnie Prince Charlie. We hiked up the trail nearby and saw it from across the water. Enjoyed the visitor center also.

Beautiful place to visit, overlooking Loch Shiel. Lovely for picnics stunning scenery. Car parking and visitor centre are here too along with the bonus of Glenfinnan Viaduct (used in Harry Potter films) just on other side of road.

Someone wanted to go here . I did initially think oh no. However what a fabulous visit. Arrived at the visitors centre. Very friendly welcome in the rain. Got booked in to climb up the inside monument with the guide. What fun. 6 visitors at a time. Cosy. The guide gave a fun talk on the monuments history. General info... More
