There are two places to view the viaduct. One is the small hill behind the visitor center at Glenfinnan and the other is a dirt path that goes under the viaduct and up the hill. I have to admit I felt a twinge of excitement...More

It is about 25 to 40 min drive from Fort William to get here. Plenty of reviews on parking, etc. Just make sure you have coins. For the viewpoint, short steep hike/walk. About 10 minutes. This is one of those, been there, done that, take...More

Don’t bother with the tiny car park, just cross the river and pay 3pound to park at the information centre (not time limited) then walk back and up the path for the viaduct - don’t forget to go through the gate and up the hill...More

Amazing viaduct with a live visit from an authentic steam train at 10:50 am every summer morning! Easy parking and walk to a good vantage point. So worth the effort to find it.

Even if you’ve never watched a Harry Potter movie, this is still an awesome sight to behold! There’s a parking lot just west of the visitor’s center. Park there. There is a road that says “authorized vehicles” but you can walk down that path right...More
