Nerd’s Eye View : Glenfinnan, Scottish Highlands

A village in the Scottish Highlands, Glenfinnan attracts many thousands of visitors from around the world to experience the stunning scenery but also the special atmosphere. The famous Glenfinnan viaduct carries the railway to Glenfinnan Station across a 1,000 ft span, 100 ft above the ground. The Jacobite steam train runs from here to Fort William and Mallaig in summer months with regular trains available the rest of the year.

The filming of the second and third Harry Potter books, Harry Potter and the Chambers of Secret and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban took place in this area with the Hogwarts Express calling at Glenfinnan…

Best way to reach Glenfinnan is by car or take a bus from Fort William — buses to Mallaig and to Acharacle, both run from Fort William. The bus company is called Shiel Buses.
