Exploring small local roads to get a view of Eilean Donan Castle in the highlands of Scotland. Unfortunately the rain or clouds didn’t want to break to give us an even better view of the castle, but it was still very impressive. The castle is perched out on a small bit of land surrounded by mountains on the rough and wind swept west coast of Scotland.

Glenfinnan attracts many thousands of visitors from around the world to experience the stunning scenery but also the special atmosphere. The famous Glenfinnan viaduct carries the railway to Glenfinnan Station across a 1,000 ft span, 100 ft above the ground. The Jacobite steam train runs from here to Fort William and Mallaig in summer months with regular trains available the rest of the year.
The filming of the second and third Harry Potter books, Harry Potter and the Chambers of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban took place in this area with the Hogwarts Express calling at Glenfinnan! In August every year, on the Saturday closest to 19 August, the Glenfinnan Gathering and Games take place.
