After leaving Edinburgh, why not head across towards Lochaber? There’s some magnificent scenery and breathtaking views that can be seen in various scenes throughout the Harry Potter film franchise.

  • The Victorian railway across the Glenfinnan Viaduct is without doubt the most iconic Harry Potter location in Scotland. The 21 arched viaduct is 380metres long and 31 metres high, and is sure to give you a spectacular view of Scotland’s countryside. Hop aboard the Jacobite Steam train (also known as the Hogwarts Express) and let it take you on an 84mile round trip from Ben Nevis. Be sure to stop in Glenfinnan itself and immerse yourself in its beauty and charm.

Those familiar with the story of Harry Potter will remember that this is Dumbledore’s final resting spot, where Volemort stole the Elder Wand and where Hagrid was found following the trial of Buckbeak.
