Harry Potter tours

Harry Potter Highland tours , visit the Elephant House cafe , Glencoe in the Highlands and the Glenfinnan Viaduct.

The Elephant House cafe in Edinburgh is where author JK Rowling started writing the Harry Potter books .

Glenfinnan Viaduct is a stunning railway viaduct on the West Highland Line that any every Harry Potter fan will recognise.

It is the set of one the most iconic shots in all of the movies, as the Hogwarts Express in Chamber of Secrets is on its way to the school and Ron and Harry are flying overhead in Arthur Weasley’s flying Ford Anglia.

The Glenfinnan Viaduct was also where the train stopped in Prisoner of Azkaban when the dementors searched for Sirius Black.

For Harry Potter fans and history fans alike, the Jacobite Express (the real name for the “Harry Potter train”) is a view worthy of a photo opportunity .

Glencoe in the Highlands was used in a number of scenes in the Harry Potter films . Glencoe was used for various outdoor scenes in The Goblet of Fire, The Order of the Phoenix and The Half-Blood Prince. The Clachaig Gully, just above the Clachaig Inn, became the location for Hagrid’s Hut in The Prisoner of Azkaban.

This tour costs £295 for a private group of up to four people

Scotland has the real-life Hogwarts Express in the form of the Jacobite Steam Train, one of the greatest railway journeys in the world. 

The train, which you can experience during a four-day tour this summer, runs from Fort William to Mallaig, crossing the 21-arched Glenfinnan Viaduct and running through rugged mountains and past stunning lochs.
