Glenfinnan Monument

Visit the iconic monument honouring the fallen Jacobite clansmen, framed by spectacular Highland scenery. Raise your bonnet to the lone, kilted highlander who stands on top of the monument. Enjoy the panoramic views of Loch Shiel, the dramatic mountains and the iconic Glenfinnan viaduct.

Stop in at the visitor centre to learn the full, dramatic story of the '45.

Visitors to Glenfinnan will instantly recognise famous locations from the Harry Potter films. In 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets' (2002), Harry and Ron were caught flying a Ford Anglia onto the tracks of the Glenfinnan Viaduct – a landmark that features in no fewer than three of the films. The area was also used as the backdrop for Hogwarts itself in several of the films, and features as the location of the Black Lake.
