Hogwart's Express

Mary Rose is a big Harry Potter fan, so one of the items on the wish list was to make a connection to Harry Potter. Not only did we see where J.K. Rowlings wrote parts of the first Harry Potter book in Edinburgh, but we also went to the Glenfinnan Viaduct which is famous for the scenes of the Hogwarts Express. If we had gone a week later, we would have been able to ride the train, but we had to go when spring break was. The monument across the road from the visitor’s center is a monument to the memory of the clansmen who fought, and died, in the Jacobite cause and the raising of the standard.
