When Mom decided to come to Scotland, she was so excited to go to Glenfinnan. IMG_0081

Glenfinnan is a village just outside of Fort William most recently famous for the Jacobite train. As a pretty massive Harry Potter fan, she was so excited to see the Harry Potter train. Sadly, the Jacobite train only runs in the summer, but you can see the Viaduct that it runs along.IMG_0083

Just across from the Glenfinnan Viaduct is Loch Shiel. I was absolutely taken aback by the view.IMG_0086 IMG_0085

On the shores of Loch Shiel stands the Glenfinnan Monument. It was built to honour the men who died in the Jacobite Rebellions. Standing atop the Monument is an anonymous Highland soldier.IMG_0087 IMG_0513Have you been to Glenfinnan? Have you ridden the Jacobite train?
