Glenfinnan Viaduct is a railway viaduct which was constructed between 1897 and 1901. The viaduct forms part of The West Highland Line connecting Fort William and Mallaig.
The viaduct has featured in many films, mainly in the Harry Potter franchise. This has lead to it becoming a very popular tourist destination.

Glenfinnan Viaduct Train Times
The Jacobite Express is a passenger steam train that runs on the line from April to late October. If you want to see the “Hogwarts Express” crossing the viaduct then it is a good idea to arrive before either 9:30am or 2pm.
The morning service crosses the viaduct at approximately 10:45-10:55am. The afternoon service crosses the viaduct at approximately 1:15-1:25pm most days and 3:10-3:20pm on a Saturday.
Check the current timetables at West Coast Railways and allow 30-40 mins from when the train leaves Fort William.
The return journey passes over the viaduct too, approximately 45 minutes after leaving Mallaig.
