  • The view was stunning as of course was the experience as a Harry potter fan!! We watched the steam train cross the viaduct and took in the view of the lake used in the potter films too! 🙌  more »

  • We managed to get the last space in the car park; Heaven knows what it is a normally like as the crowds were absent due to COVID restrictions. We took the short walk along the path under the viaduct....  more »

  • Stop here on route to the Ferry, very small car park and about a 10/15 min walk if you want to climb up the hill on the other side to get a better view. I imagined if you planned ahead correctly and timed it with a train going over it would look decent.
  • Wonderful bridge. Park your car in nearby visitor centre and walk up to this wonderful bridge. It’s a lovely walk and if you are lucky then you would see deers too. Beautiful scenic views are all around this bridge. This bridge has featured in Harry Potter movies too.
  • Brilliant wee walk to see the Harry potter train. Would definitely recommend it to everyone as it costs nothing to stand and watch it pass by at 3pm. This place truly makes Scotland seem magical!
  • Accessible via road next to car park. Easy roll for great views of the Viaduct made famous by the Harry Potter movie. View only from below. Muddy vertical path, suitable only for mountain goats, to see track from above.
  • Wonderful place! The train crosses the bridge at 10:50 and 15:00. I would recommend to go 15 minutes earlier to catch the perfect spot ✔️
