Even if someone hasn't traveled to the Glenfinnan Viaduct, Scotland, then certainly seen it the bridge in the Harry Potter movie. It is here, along this route, where scenes were filmed on the famous "Hogwarts Express" steam train from the second and third Harry Potter film.

The impressive viaduct Glenfinnan is located next to the Loch Shiel Lake and about 0.6 miles from the village of Glenfinnan, which is actually named. This is the longest concrete viaduct in Scotland with a length of 380 meters, functioning since 1901 year.

Even if someone hasn't traveled there, then certainly seen it the bridge in the Harry Potter movie. It is here, along this route, where scenes were filmed on the famous "Hogwarts Express" steam train from the second and third Harry Potter film. The place is extremely popular with his fans. On the railroad, a steam train is really passes – The Jacobite train, which travels 84 miles among the natural beauties at the foot of the highest british peak – Ben Nevis.

Viaduct Glenfinnan can be easily reached. By the main road there is a small, but convenient parking lot, from which you can walk to the bridge within a few minutes. From there you have different options where to position, if you want to see how the steam train passes. It is good to check the current train schedule to know when to expect it.

Filming the video was a real challenge, as there was some invasion of aggressive scottish midges that I felt, they wanted to eat us.
