The Glenfinnan Viaduct is a railway viaduct on the West Highland Line in Glenfinnan, Inverness-shire, Scotland. Located at the top of Loch Shiel in the West Highlands of Scotland, the viaduct
overlooks the Glenfinnan Monument and the waters of Loch Shiel.
It began construction in 1897 and was opened in 1901. It’s been described as
one of the great wonders of Scottish engineering and even features on one of The
Bank of Scotland’s £10 notes, the distinctive curved construction is one of it's
most famous features.
The bridge attracts almost
300,000 visitors per year now from the world over after being made famous by a certain film series and it has appeared in no less than four of those films as well as several other TV series and films. During the summer months the Jacobite Express steam train puffs its way along it a couple of times a day.
Having not built with Lego
since my childhood and being amazed by the Harry Potter Lego sets my partner
builds and collects, I decided to rekindle my youth and design this build. It is also a gift to her.
