Itinerary


Learn all about Edinburgh’s connections to Harry Potter, as we depart the city and journey north towards the Highlands, past the magnificent Forth Bridge, the Kingdom of Fife and Perth.  

 Feast your eyes upon the Glenfinnan Viaduct on the stunning drive up the West Coast. The next time you see it will be when  you’re travelling across its iconic arches on the Jacobite Steam Train from Mallaig!  

 After your experience on one of the world’s most beautiful railway lines, we’ll take you straight to Scotland’s most dramatic landscape, Glencoe, which was used as the backdrop for some much-loved scenes in Harry Potter.  

 We continue through the vast wilderness of Rannoch Moor, regaling tales from Scotland’s past, before arriving back into the city in the late evening.
