Walk to the Glenfinnan Viaduct
To be immersed in the green fields and rolling hills of Scotland is a dream come true, especially heading towards a grand and famous viaduct. My friend and I planned to visit the Glenfinnan Bridge whilst we were in Scotland, for a quick photo op. What we weren’t expecting was how amazing that photo opportunity would be – we could walk right up to and stand almost under the bridge! It was an overcast slightly wet day as we were walking through the West Highlands, enchanted by Scotland’s natural beauty with is rushing rivers, lush greenery and colourful wildflowers dotting the landscape. We chose to do this walk mid-morning, and enjoyed the peacefulness the hike gave, as at many points during the adventure there weren’t any other people around. As we got closer to the bridge, more tourists joined us and with a sense of excitement brewing, every 10 meters or so we got a glimpse of the grand viaduct. It was so thrilling so be getting closer and closer to this majestic bridge as we weren’t too sure if at the end of the pathway there would be a fenced off section. To our anticipation, there wasn’t, and we were able to stand almost under the bridge. Being so close to something so longstanding, and still functioning was awe inspiring and I am so pleased that I got to experience this man-made wonder.
