THE GLENFINNAN MEMORIAL

When Bonnie Prince Charlie arrived in Scotland from France, he came to the area of Glenfinnan. Here he rallied the troops for the Jacobite uprising of 1745. Later, when his defeat at Culloden, he came back to Glenfinnan to leave the country. The memorial marks the spot where he left.

The Glenfinnan viaduct can be seen from the back of the visitor’s center – the viaduct that was used in the Harry Potter movie for the Hogwart Express.
