Know Before You Go
Visitors can climb the monument between April and October after purchasing a ticket from the National Trust, which also maintains an exhibit about the Jacobite Rising of 1745.
To get here: By car, it is 17 miles west of Fort William along the A830. By bus or train, (Monday–Saturday) use Shiel Buses or Scotrail from Fort William. Both options take 25–35 minutes.
The walk to the viaduct is on a private road, so you can only park in the parking lot. Please do not park on the single track road into the village (opposite the viaduct car park), as this is the only way in/out for residents and blocking the path is not a good idea. The walk from the train station to the viaduct (or vice versa) is definitely worth the views!
