2. Glenfinnan Viaduct to Ben Nevis
While making your way around Scotland, you won’t want to miss two of its most famous sights, which handily happen to be within convenient travelling distance of each other.
Spend a day or two enjoying the natural beauty that surrounds the nation’s most famous mountain of all – Ben Nevis. At 1,345 metres above sea level, the beloved peak is part of the Grampian Mountains, and not to be underestimated. Fit and experienced climbers can scale it and return in seven to eight hours but more laid back travellers can enjoy its glory from afar.
The resort town of Fort William will be waiting for you afterwards with refreshments and plenty to do. From here, Glen Nevis is within easy reach, where you can view the iconic Glenfinnan Viaduct, which is the best place to try to spot the Hogwarts Express.
