National Trust for Scotland Glenfinnan

In August 19th 1745, at the head of Loch Shiel, Prince Charles Edward Stewart raised his Standard, marking the start of his campaign to restore the exiles Stuarts to the throne. From this sport, Bonnie PRince Charlie and his followers made it as far south as Derby before their eventual defeat the following year at Culloden.

The Glenfinnan Monument was designed by the Scottish architect James Gillespie Graham, and was erected in 1815 by Alexander MacDonald of Glenaladale as a tribute to the clansmen who fought and died in the cause of the Stuarts. You can find out more about Bonnie Prince Charlie's at the Visitor Centre. Fans of Harry Potter, meanwhile, might recognise the viaduct nearby that features in the movies.

The National Trust for Scotland Visitor Centre Shop and snack bar are open Good Friday - 31 October daily 10-5; 1 July to 31 Aug, daily 9.30-5.30; November, weekends only 10-4.

Monument open all year.
