The viaduct was built in 1897–1901 by the engineer Sir Robert McAlpine. It has 21 arches, reaching as high as 100 ft (30 m).
The Glenfinnan viaduct recently came to prominence in the Harry Potter films The Steam Train became transformed into the Hogwarts Express and was filmed crossing the viaduct
We climbed up very high to photograph the viaduct and waited for the train to come from Mallaig . Gosh was I breathless...but it was well worth the climb.

Any breathless climb has to be worth it when you get an image as good as this
