Harry Potter on Location

Filming of the second and third Harry Potter books, 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets' and 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' took place in September 2001 and in 2003/4 with the 'Hogwarts Express' calling at Glenfinnan. Pupils from Lochaber High School were dressed in wizard robes as pupils of Hogwarts Castle, the School for Wizards.

The flying car sequence in 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets' was filmed at Glenfinnan Railway Viaduct 20 or so miles west of Fort William. The viaduct carries the Fort William to Mallaig railway across the Glenfinnan valley. The loch in the background is Loch Shiel.
