Added by Margo Schmiederer

An incredible hike/walk around a famous railway in the Highlands of Scotland.

An incredible hike/walk around the Glenfinnan Viaduct, a famous section of the railway in the United Kingdom. It is a very peaceful place and parking is very easy. There is a small stream in the area and if you go in late August or early September, you'll be surrounded by Scotland's famous wildflowers. This place is truly serene and heavenly - if you're in the area, be sure to stop by! 

For Harry Potter fans, yes - they've filmed shots of the Hogwarts Express in this location!
