For a better view of the area, climb the hill behind the visitor center. Stunning! History of this area is interesting.

Very knowledgeable people that work the centre. Everyone was pleasant and helpful. Enjoyed the small historical area they have.

Thought it quite basic and parking an issue as not enough spaces for volume of vehicles. Also no monument tour available as guide on holiday?! Cannot believe a tourist attraction like that does not have more than one guide so that holiday cover could be...More

These is a shop, an exhibition, a café and you can buy admission tickets to climb the monument. Site of great historical interest. As always they sell quality prroducts and the food is great as well

Well worth the diversion to this lookout point. The main attraction now is the ‘Harry Potter’ viaduct.

Worth looking in and reading about the history of the area. Admission is free though there is not a lot to read/see.

We passed the place from Fort William to Malaig. We just missed the train but could get dry and drink some nice coffee until the rain was gone. Very polite people although very busy around 11 when the steam train passes.

This is an ideal spot to stop to see the viaduct as well as the Glenfinnan monument. There are toilets, a historic display, cafe and gift shop. My only criticism is that the cafe is very small and may get overrun in peak season.
