Full description
Visit the birthplace of the 1745 Scottish Jacobite uprising with your entry ticket to the Glenfinnan Monument and Visitor Center. Not only is it an important location in Scottish history, it’s also an important Harry Potter film location. Start your visit at the Visitor Center to learn about the story of “Bonnie” Prince Charlie, the mastermind of the uprising. At your own pace, take in the Jacobite exhibition, artefacts, and intricate model re-creating the moment of the 1745 Gathering. Then, walk across to the beautiful 18 meter-high monument and climb the tower for unrivaled views of the beautiful Highland scenery, including of Loch Shiel and the famous railway. Stand by the lone Highlander statue at the top of the monument. Make the most of the beautiful scenery and photo opportunities. Keep an eye out for the "Hogwarts Express" steam train crossing the world-famous Glenfinnan Viaduct while you’re at the top. Surrounded by mountains on the shores of Loch Shiel, Glenfinnan Monument is a tranquil spot from which to imagine the day when one of the most important events in Scottish history began here: the 1745 Jacobite Rising.

    Try to park in the national trust Scotland car park as it's free for members. We had a motohome so parked in the less busy section and paid £6. We enjoyed going up inside the monument. As we still have covid restrictions we went up as one household so all very safe. Beautiful location and within an easy 15min walk of the viaduct it intested. Toilets in shop good. Nice guy running cafe but at 1 there wasn't much choice and all outside which with the midges was tricky. Would definitely recommend and worth a visit.
