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!

star-5
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 and hot drinks.
