  • Loved it. Loved the scenery and being able to get so close. The walks around there are beautiful. There are even sparkly rocks to see.
  • One of the most characteristic views of the Highlands if not the most iconic. Definitely worth a stop in any condition to admire the beautiful Loch and its surroundings. Harry Potter fans should have a look at the viaduct in opposite direction as the Loch and preferably time their arrival with the "Harry Potter" train.
