The Glenfinnan Viaduct soars across the valley as it carries the railway to Glenfinnan Station across a 1,000 ft span, 100 ft above the ground. Dating back to 1901, this imposing stone bridge is the longest viaduct in Scotland. The viaduct soars across the valley with a stunning view overlooking the Glenfinnan Monument and the waters of Loch Shiel. If you time your shooting adventure just right the Jacobite steam train runs from here to Fort William and Mallaig in summer months.

The filming of two Harry Potter movies, Harry Potter and the Chambers of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, took place in this area with the Hogwarts Express steaming over the viaduct taking the student to Hogwarts.
