This is the bridge from the Harry Potter films. Best wide view is a short walk from Glenfinnan monument paid parking lot. Best closer view is a short walk from the train station(limited parking). Map in train station shows where to walk to. We missed the steam train crossing by 3 minutes. Read the schedule carefully. Steam train only crosses twice a day. A beautiful setting for an amazing beautiful bridge. Twenty to thirty minute drive up from Fort William.

Best views from the loch but ever popular due to its film and book connections to Harry Potter. Blends well with the surroundings- just to remind us that engineering feats can blend with the countryside.

Lovely short hike to this grand viaduct. We went up there and crossed the mountain to the train station. The view of Loch Shiel (Black lake) and location of Hogwarts is spectacular.

Nobody can fail to be impressed by the grandeur of the setting and the engineering accomplishment. An easy walk from the car park, the viaduct opens up before you with the mountains framed behind. Often red deer can be seen nearby and brown trout in the River Finnan.

It was just a short walk to the Glenfinnan Monument. Very cool to stand under the bridge and view it up close especially after seeing it filmed in Harry Potter. My husband and I would have loved to ride the steam train but unfortunately it was not open for the year.
