We went to the railways station and took the viaduct trail which takes you over the mountain and down and back up again before reaching the viewpoint. You get a great view of the loch and the monument which builds up beautifully prior to reaching the viewpoint, and if you time it well you get the breathtaking views of the... More

The day before we had crossed the viaduct on the train so we decided to go an watch the train crossing this iconic, and famous, viaduct. If anything it was even more stunning. I had expected similar crowds as we had seen from the train, including what looked like a wedding, but because of the weather, we had the view... More

The Glenfinnan viaduct is best known for its role in the Harry Potter films. Beneath the viaduct there is a stream and a bridge. If you also happen to be a Winnie the Pooh fan, it is a perfect spot for pooh sticks! There is a free car park (just before or past the Glenfinnan Monument and visitor information centre),depending... More

There is a lot about Scottish history here, but many seem to come for the Harry Potter history. There is a small hill behind the visitor centre that you can climb to get a great view of the viaduct as well as the loch. We were lucky enough to climb up and see a steam train go by. the view... More

Absolutely gorgeous. We missed the train coming over but the backdrop alone is truly magical. We even got to see two stags grazing in the field just in front of via duct itself. Well worth the stop.

Nice bridge in a beautiful scenery, especially when the train crosses the bridge. Again a nice location in Schotland to take some photos.

It was late afternoon, the sun was blazing away, calm and the temperature was 26C! We used the car park and short track beside the Glenfinnian Centre and climbed the hill. The view of the extraordinarily curved rail viaduct and it's setting were spectacular. The sky, the mountains, the valley and the viaduct. Impressive. We did not have time to... More

A short little walk gets you to a decent vantage point to get some cracking photos of the regular steam train as it passes over the viaduct. A must for Harry Potter fans, but you would be advised to apply a liberal layer of Smidge before you go.
