Beyond the monument Ben Nevis is visible, the UK’s highest mountain, while a 10-minute walk away through the red deer dotted Glenfinnan Estate, is the famous Glenfinnan viaduct railway bridge which was used in scenes from various Harry Potter films. This Scottish country house is a fine stone mansion dating from 1755.
Attractive public rooms include a comfortable drawing room, a beautifully appointed dining room and a welcoming bar where traditional music is often heard. Manja and Duncan Gibson are the resident managers who will welcome you into the delightful hall, where a log fire blazes. Along pine-panelled walls hang an atmospheric collection of paintings including an impressive portrayal of the 1745 Jacobite Rising at Glenfinnan.
