If you are travelling to us by Car, Bus or Rail, you will have the chance to see the Famous Glenfinnan Viaduct. 

The 380 metres long and 31 metres high Victorian Railway Bridge is instantly recognisable from that opening scene in the Chamber of Secrets; the only thing missing is Harry and Ron flying overhead in the Weasley’s magical Ford Anglia car, but if you time it right , you will even catch The Famous Jacobite Steam Train, which travels over the Viaduct twice a day in the Summer

At the tip of Loch Shiel you will also see the setting for where Harry encounters a Dementor for the very first time in the Prisoner of Azkaban, when the Hogwarts Express stops on the bridge. If you’re keen to relive this experience and risk coming face to face with a Dementor, the Jacobite Steam Train, described as ‘the greatest railway journey in the world’ will take you on an 84-mile round trip from Ben Nevis, stopping in the village of Glenfinnan and crossing the 21-arched Glenfinnan Viaduct where you’ll get the chance to take in the magnificent scenic views and get the chance to visit us in Mallaig.

Best viewed from your vintage Carriage on The Jacobite Steam Train. Eilean na Moine may look like one of the most enchanting locations you’ve ever seen but this place, is in fact the setting for some of the most somber Harry Potter moments of all time, namely doing double duty as Dumbledore’s final resting place, where Voldemort stole the powerful Elder Wand in Deathly Hallows Part 1.

Loch Eilt is also the sad setting where Harry and the gang find Hagrid skimming stones over the water following the trial of his beloved Buckbeak, in Prisoner of Azkaban.
