Worth a visit. Short walk from car park up an easy path to a viewpoint. Car park is not free but disabled badge holders park free. The staff in the visitor centre will tell you when the steam train is due to pass through which...More

Parked at the info site parking(cost £3, free if you park further up at the start of the walk) and walked to the viaduct. Lovely walk and excellent scenery. Average coffee at the cafe there

Not sure I would go out of the way to see this. You can probably hike to get closer to it, otherwise off the road stop it is quite a distance away. The area is very charmingly rural.

Bit of a steep climb, but totally doable. View of the Glenfinnan monument and the Harry Potter railway viaduct. Enjoyed a beautiful sunny day here (were we really in Scotland????) Drive to Arisaig and have a drink at The Old Library, lovely people there

A great day taking pictures and enjoying the scenery. Walked up over the back to get a panoramic view of the via duct, then walked over the trail to the station. Great place for train spotters and Harry Potter fans alike!

I knew we would not arrive in time to see the Jacobite train cross the viaduct but I hadn’t banked on the fact that the people that were there to see it would still be parked when we arrived. Both car parks were full but...More

The Glenfinnan Viaduct itself is not very impressive unless you are a Harry Potter fan, then it is incredibly cool! I loved being able to see the famous viaduct where the Hogwarts Express runs. The view of the Loch from the hill next to the...More
