Loch Shiel and Glenfinnan Monument - Lochaber, Highland, Scotland

Loch Shiel and Glenfinnan Monument - Lochaber, Highland, Scotland

Loch Shiel is located west of Fort William in the Highlands of Scotland. It is surrounded by mountains and served as the filming location for the school's "Black Lake" of the Harry Potter movies.
The Glenfinnan Monument seen at the edge of the loch was put up in 1815 to mark the spot where Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) raised his standard at the start of the Jacobite Rising in 1745.
