Glenfinnan Viaduct, Mallaig & Glencoe

Our first stop of the day is on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, where you can enjoy morning refreshments, with some wonderful views looking over to Ben Lomond.

As we head towards Glencoe, your driver-guide will point out Buachaille Etive Mor, this is where 007 and M drove to reach ‘Skyfall’. This area was also used in many scenes from the Harry Potter films and you’ll have time here to savour the stunning scenery of Scotland’s most famous glen.

Loch Eilt is another ‘Harry Potter’ location where Hagrid was seen skimming stones across the water. Nearby, you’ll see Eilean na Moine which is the final resting place of Dumbledore.

Reaching the Silver Sands of Morar you’ll think you’re in the Caribbean. Take a short stroll along the glistening sand with its turquoise waters looking over to the small isles.

At Mallaig we’ll have time to explore this beautiful little fishing port whilst enjoying some local fish and chips.

For many the highlight of the journey is Glenfinnan, and we schedule our arrival here to see the Jacobite Steam Train cross the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct as seen in the Harry Potter movies.

On one side you have views of the Glenfinnan Viaduct curving through the glen in a scene immortalised as the route to Harry Potter’s Hogwarts. On the other side you have stunning views of the Glenfinnan Monument standing at the head of Loch Shiel.

Our last stop is at the Drovers Inn, a traditional Scottish pub and historic resting point for weary travellers of old. Enjoy an evening refreshment in front of a roaring log fire once enjoyed by the infamous outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor.


Will I see the Jacobite Steam Train crossing the Glenfinnan Viaduct?

The Jacobite Steam Train is scheduled to operate from April – October in 2021. We aim to reach Glenfinnan in time to see the train crossing (subject to the train operating per their timetable). There is a great viewpoint to get photos of the train as it travels across the viaduct. 

The train does not operate from November – March. During this time our tour still visits the iconic Glenfinnan Viaduct.
