Harry Potter Scotland road trip
As Harry Potter fans celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first book being released, here we have 20 magical photos taken on a road trip in Scotland, all are either film locations of the Harry Potter movies or places that inspired the books written by JK Rowling. To take in the beautiful scenery it takes around 3 days to travel around the locations in the Highlands and Edinburgh, but all within a few hundred miles.
Pictured The Glenfinnan Viaduct is one of the most picturesque and famous film location as it carries the railway to Glenfinnan Station across a 1,000 ft span, 100 ft above the ground. In the Chamber of Secrets film Harry Potter and Ron Weasley flew above the Viaduct in a Ford Anglia escaping from the Dursleys. Subject to timetables you can usually watch the train pass over the viaduct at around 10.45am and again in the afternoon, the car park nearby can get busy with tourists so arriving early is advised and only costs a few pounds to park. Its a 25 minute walk to the viewing area, but is a bit steep in places.
