The Glenfinnan Monument stands in the village of Glenfinnan in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands. It was erected in 1815 to commemorate the Jacobite Rising of 1745 that began in Glenfinnan when Prince Charles Edward Stuart raised his standard on the shores of Loch Shiel claiming the thrones of England and Scotland in the name of his father, James Stuart. Designed by Scottish architect James Gillespie Graham, the monument stands 60 feet tall at the head of the lock and has also come to honor Alexander MacDonald, who built the tower but died before it was completed. Jacobites still gather at the monument each year on August 19 to commemorate the 1745 uprising.

The monument has been in the care of the National Trust of Scotland since 1938 and a visitor center offers information and exhibitions, as well as a café and ticket booth. An audio guide is available that details the Prince’s final campaign from Glenfinnan to Derby and back to Dulloden.

Short cruise to Prince's Bay: Harry Potter film locations and Jacobite history

star-4.5

An hour well spent in the beautiful Glenfinnan area of Loch Shiel. We will view the viaduct made famous in the Harry Potter films and tell you all about it. We also explain the significance of the monument at Glenfinnan and explain a little about its history and the reason it is there. We then explore the north end of Loch Shiel. Firstly we pass the place featured in the Tri-wizard tournament in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. We then pass the salmon farm and bird nesting islands and the point where Hogwarts was based in several of the Harry Potter films. We then make it to Prince's bay where "Bonnie Prince Charlie" rested before raising his standard at Glenfinnan in August 1745. Keep your eyes open for Golden eagles who frequent the hills and use our binoculars to get a better look at these huge birds of prey.

Glenaladale Cruise - Great for wizard spotting!

Glenaladale Cruise - Great for wizard spotting!

star-5
19
Cruise through history and modern culture all at the same time! Harry Potter and historic monuments, you will learn about them both. Loch Shiel has featured in many films, Highlander in the 80s and now Harry Potter has brought it worldwide fame. This cruise can also be great for spotting Golden eagles up above the mountains, red deer on the hill sides and other water birds such as the Black Throated Diver (Loon). Glenaladale is a beautiful glen, secluded from the busy world. It is an area famous for being a home of the MacDonald clan, for centuries the MacDonalds worked the land and lived here but later were forced to leave for new starts further afield. The glen still attracts people visiting the home of their ancestors from all over the world. There is a toilet on board and a well stocked bar with malt whiskies as well as a good selection of wine, spirits, soft drinks, snacks and hot drinks. Please park at the main Glenfinnan car park and walk down to the jetty if possible.

Gaskan cruise - Golden Eagles!

Gaskan cruise - Golden Eagles!

star-5

This cruise takes you on an adventure in to the wilderness. Starting in the busy Glenfinnan area where we describe all the sights and detail the history of the village both old and modern. We soon whisk you off down the loch to the land of eagles, deer, Harry Potter landmarks and the home of the MacDonalds of Glenaladale. Gaskan cottage was the home of well known naturalist Mike Tomkies for many years whilst he studied and wrote of the local wildlife, especially the eagles and wildcats there. It can only be accessed by boat or very long walk so this part of the loch is very serene and unspoilt.
