Description:

It's nice if you are interested in the film location or in photography. Visiting the bridge site without a train passing is less interesting, so check the time. Today we arrived at 14:30 at the car park and two trains passed around 15:10-15:20. You can park at the visitor center for just 2£ or if place 25 meters further at the small car park after the bridge. Walk the path at this park, ignore the first path to the right. Follow the sign to the view spot or turn right accross the river, under the viaduct and then follow the path up. After the viaduct take a spot on the hills, just above the viaduct. This is the closest to the approaching train. There is also a spot at the visitor's center that is further away. If you want to experience the viaduct by travelling across it, use the Scotrail public service which offers better views from its open coaches than the compartments on the Jacobite. Scotrail slows the train and there is usually room for photographers to move around to maximise the views. My rides were with enthusiastic train staff who may give you a running commentary. And the lunchtime train arrives Mallaig in time to film the Jacobite departure.
