Planning your visit

Parking is available for cars and coaches close to the visitor centre and is free for members. The number of camper vans will be limited at busy times due to space restrictions in the main area of the car park.

Our cosy café at the visitor centre offers hot drinks along with delicious soup, sandwiches and cakes. New this season, the Viaduct View Café is available for drinks and snacks and is located in the car park.

Browse our well-stocked gift shop and find the perfect Scottish gift to take home. You’ll also have the chance to buy from our Harry Potter range of products.

Dogs are welcome in the grounds but please keep them on a lead. Only assistance dogs are permitted in the visitor centre.

If you plan to see the Jacobite ‘Hogwarts Express’ steam train, we recommend allowing plenty of time to get parked to avoid disappointment – the car park is closed when full, for safety reasons.

For more information about planning your visit please see our frequently asked questions.

If you’d like to speak to us we can be contacted by email: glenfinnan@nts.org.uk or telephone 01397 722250.
