Finnich Glen

The climax of The Eagle (plus some earlier scenes) was filmed at Finnich Glen, also known as The Devil's Pulpit, a very narrow 100ft deep gorge hidden away in trees next to the A809 approx 4 miles south of Drymen and a mile west of Killearn.

Finnich Glen

There is a small layby on the B8054 approx 500m east of it's junction with the A809 which provides parking for a few cars. From here it is around 160m across a field to the stream and then a further couple of hundred metres to the wider eastern end of the gorge where the final battle was filmed.

These pages Walk Highlands Forum and Moray Club give details of access to the glen via the far more interesting but hazardous victorian steps at the western end plus photographs of various parts of it. Videos of the access via the old victorian steps down into the glen on Youtube uploaded by Bealach and finnichglen
