Food icon Shop icon

Glenfinnan Station Museum is situated in the famous and beautiful village of Glenfinnan on the Road to the Isles between Fort William and Mallaig.

The Glenfinnan Experience not only includes the Station Museum but also has the added attractions of the Monument to Bonnie Prince Charlie at the head of Loch Shiel, the adjacent National Trust Visitor Centre and the Loch Shiel Eagle Watch Cruises. Towering above and behind, set in the mountain backdrop, stands the Glenfinnan Railway Viaduct, initially famous as the largest concrete viaduct in this country but now internationally acclaimed as a key location in the Harry Potter Films.

The Museum provides the visitor with a journey into the past of rail travel in the West Highlands whilst remaining an operational Railway Station with 4 trains each way, as well as the Jacobite Steam Train during the summer months to remind you of a previous age of romantic travel.
