Glenfinnan Monument reviews
After visiting Harry Potter Bridge to see the Jacobite Team Train, don't miss to visit this monument. It's located down the road near coffee shop and gift shop. It's easy to see from far.

If you're at the Viaduct, you might as well cross the street to see the Glenfinnan Monument. The view over Loch Shiel is marvelous! I mean postcard worthy!

Fantastic place for a day trip with both the loch , monument and viaduct within easy reach from the car park at the visitors centre. Good for families with plenty of space to roam around but getting up to the high vantage points for the best views involves some climbing so may be a challenge for some.. worth it for the breathtaking scenery though!
Stunning views both from the monument and a five minuet walk up the hill from the visitor centre. With the monument and viaduct we stayed for over 3 hours. Fab day out. Parking was hard work for us but then we were in a long wheelbase converted van. The second car park has spaces for campers.
