Glencoe and Hagrid’s hut

We’ve had a lovely couple of days in Glencoe, Scotland. What a beautiful place!

Part of the reason we came here is because we recently read all the Harry Potter books to the kids at bedtime. This is the second time I’ve read them aloud because I did it for Daniel some years ago and now it’s Elizabeth’s turn. After each book we watched the films and during the Prisoner of Azkaban I admired the lovely scenery around Hagrid’s hut and discovered it was filmed in Glencoe. Here’s a pic from the film (taken from Harry Potter in Glencoe):

And here’s the same spot today:

The Hagrid’s hut is about 25 minutes walk from Glencoe Village. Alternatively you can park at the Clachaig Inn and then it’s a 5 minute walk. It’s marked on Google maps:
