    Eilan Donan castle has been used in loads of things, notably Highlander and the Bond movie The World is Not Enough. I think it was also used in the film Doomsday as well, but I'm not sure of that one.

    I wonder if they added extra fog for effect on that shot?  :D

    This list would not be complete without The Wicker Man starring Christopher Lee, one of the best of all time. That was filmed throughout Scotland; including places like Culzean Castle, Plockton and St. Ninians' Cave. 

    What about the film Loch Ness?  With Ted Danson.

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail  was also a classic, some scenes from that were filmed at Doune Castle, like Outlander, Castle Stalker and Bracklinn Falls up in the Trossachs. @Samantha_Grant ;

    @VisitScotlandHeather Great photo. 
    I can't take the credit unfortunately.  It was actually my boyfriend who found the exact spot and set up the shot.  It was a fun thing to do though :smiley:

    I recently ticked off Dunnottar Castle from my bucket list... wanted to go there since I watched Brave.  It was really amazing, although a little windy!

    Loch Ness - an absolute 'classic'. Some unusual accents in that film.

    On the West Highland Line to Mallaig you pass the remote train station on the Rannoch where Renton has his classic rant in Trainspotting and then you scoot over the Glenfinnan Viaduct AKA The Harry Potter Bridge.

    Not bad for one train trip!

    I was beginning to watch Ridley Scott's Alien prequel, Prometheus, a few weeks back, when I saw the Old Man of Storr on the Isle of Skye appear at the beginning of the film. I did not manage to make it to the end of the movie to see if they ever returned to Skye, but it did get me thinking of other movies to use the island as a cinematic backdrop, with Highlander and Made of Honor coming to mind

    Restless Natives, Gregory's Girl and Local Hero are my favorite Scottish movies:)

    A lot of the recent Macbeth film was shot on Skye too.

    I Know Where I'm Going by Powell and Pressburger is one of my all time favourite films. It definitely stands the test of time in my view.

    I was excited to see the trailer for the BFG recently:



    Did you know that some of the filming took place on Skye? Not surprising as it's such a magical place.

    Here's some info on the locations: https://t.co/R6Ij8tXd8g

    Pennan in Aberdeenshire is a wee gem. VERY steep road down to it. It was one of the locations in Local Hero and the Phone box they used is now a listed building/phone box.
