Ingrid’s Top Tips for Glenfinnan area.

Favourite eating places
Great atmosphere, full of character (it was built in the 1750s) and the food by award wining chef Duncan Gibson is excellent. Serving food all day until 9pm and just 1min walk from the Old Laundry. Offering takeaway and sit-in during 2020 but booking ahead is essential. Their Thursday evening trad music sessions throughout the Summer season are legendary but sadly on hold in 2020. Open March - end Oct.

This a really great place for lunch or for coffee & cake. Go there for morning coffee and catch the Jacobite Steam Train's (aka Hogwart's Express) arrival in the Summer or enjoy a lazy lunch in an old style railway carriage. The homemade soup is always yummy. 10 min walk up the hill from the Old Laundry. Open April - end of October

A nice spot for watching the world go by in the fishing port of Mallaig which is 40mins drive from the Old Laundry. Prawn rolls highly recommended with fresh Mallaig prawns (some say langoustine) Try and catch it out-with Jacobite Steam Train time as it can get busy with visitors.

Visit this artisan bakery early if you want some amazing treats - long ferment bread, hand made viennoiserie, patisserie & savouries to die for but they get scooped up early. Delicious freshly made pizzas & hot rolls served throughout the day in the beautifully built Crannog building next door which overlooks the marina. 40mins drive west from the Old Laundry.

Places to visit/ Things to do
Ruined castle, ancient seat of the Clanranald MacDonald's, near the village of Acharacle (an hour's drive from Glenfinnan) A lovely drive down and especially the last few miles of single track road which lead to etc beachdan by the castle. Nice walks around there and parking by the castle. Nice hidden gem that not a lot of tourists find.

Take a walk up the glen and just 10mins walk from the Old Laundry you'll find this viaduct, made famous from the Harry Potter movies. Catch the Jacobite Steam Train (aka Hogwart's Express) crossing in the morning and afternoon. Best pics are from the viewpoints up the hill. Carry on further up the glen for a beautiful, longer walk and escape the rest of the visitors. The road goes on for 3miles on either side of the river.

A lovely walk within the village of Glenfinnan. Take a left along the wooden walkway to the left of the Glenfinnan Monument and cross the calm & meandering River Callop. Follow the trails up through the ancient Caledonian Pines or wander further down the shores of Loch Shiel. Gorgeous.
