This viaduct is one of the most visited and popular bridges in Scotland. Featuring in many movies over the years, with the most popular being all 4 of the Harry Potter movies, so you can see why it’s now such a big tourist attraction with private tours in Scotland.
If yours on a custom made tour of Scotland on the west side of the country you’ll be sure to be visiting this unique Scottish landmark at some point of your trip.
This bridge is part of the rail extension from Forth William to Mallaig, opening in 1901 this admirable bridge being the largest viaduct in Scotland with 21 concrete arches that swept round the valley overlooking Loch Shiel.
If you’re on a private tour of Scotland and book the Jacobite steam train, you’ll see the fantastic views while crossing the viaduct over looking the Loch, also in the area is the Glenfinnan monument that sits at the head of the Loch, this was erected to commemorate the historic event of Bonnie Prince Charlie in the Jacobite uprising. Visiting the area of the viaduct is easy by car or coach as it has a large parking area for all private tours of Scotland, as Lochaber has some of the best scenery Scotland has to offer.
But if you plan your own custom made tour of Scotland or have booked a coach for your Scottish highland tour, I’d recommend a visit to Glenfinnan Viaduct, wither it’s on the Jacobite steam train or your own private tour of Scotland, make sure you plan to stop here on your exclusive vacation to Scotland.
