The Glenfinnan viaduct is an interesting excursion from Best Western The Crianlarich Hotel.
The viaduct recently came to prominence in the Harry Potter films, when the Jacobite Steam Train became transformed into the Hogwarts Express and was memorably depicted crossing the viaduct. The Glenfinnan Viaduct has been used as a location in several other films and television series, including Charlotte Gray, Monarch of the Glen, and the Stone of Destiny.
