Finnan, Glen

A valley of the West Highlands, Glen Finnan descends southwest from the vicinity of Sgurr Thuilm to the head of Loch Shiel at the settlement of Glenfinnan. The River Finnan flows through the valley and enters the Loch Shiel to the west of the Glenfinnan Monument, which marks the spot where Prince Charles Edward Stuart raised his standard in 1745. The valley is crossed by the Glenfinnan Viaduct close to its end and the Glenfinnan Lodge lies in the valley 2½ miles (4 km) to the north.
