What to expect

Learn all about Edinburgh's connections to Harry Potter as you travel north towards the Highlands, taking in the stunning scenery along the way before hopping on board the iconic Jacobite Steam Train.

You'll leave the city behind and head into the Scottish Highlands as you follow in the footsteps of the world's most famous wizard, Harry Potter. Scotland has played a huge role in the story of Harry Potter from the scenic filming locations and inspiring architecture to the coffee shop where J.K.Rowling is said to have written the first novel. As you drive up the West Coast, you'll check out the Forth Bridge and the Glenfinnan Viaduct, enjoying the dramatic landscapes that have been the backdrop for some much-loved movie scenes.

Riding the Jacobite Steam Train is a bucket-list experience for any traveller, but even more so for Harry Potter fans who know that they are actually boarding the iconic Hogwarts’ Express! Your passionate guides will help to soak up the Harry Potter magic as well as the real-life beauty and history of Scotland.
