Harry Potter and the Isle of Skye

Most exciting for me at this point of the trip was a chance to drive through Harry Potter country. The weather was a bit wet, notable mostly because it hadn’t actually been too bad so far!

Leaving the Isle of Mull we were back on Oban and onward to Fort William via Glencoe. Glencoe is the beautiful area where some of the scenic shots in the Harry Potter movies are filmed. Hagrid’s Hut in the Clachaig Gully, Loch Shiel, and the Glenfinnan Viaduct in particular. I’m a Harry Potter nerd so seeing these places IRL was pretty damn cool. The bus loads of tourists that arrived at the viaduct just after us thought so too.
