Sending an owl to all Harry Potter fans!

Now, a trip to Platform 9¾ in London isn’t the only way to catch the Hogwarts Express.

You can live out your wildest wizard dreams with a trip on the Jacobite, a railway journey in Scotland that crosses the 21-arched Glenfinnan Viaduct — the iconic route taken by the Hogwarts Express.

Described on its website as “the greatest railway journey in the world,” this 84-mile (approx. 135 km) round trip travels past some amazing sights, including the highest mountain in Britain, which marks the start of the trip.

The bridge also overlooks Loch Shiel, a stunning lake in Scotland which can provide amazing views and even better pictures.

Take a look through the stunning shots and get inspired to explore for yourself:

If you ever find yourself in Scotland and aren’t able to take the train, you can always just get your flying car to drop you off.
