Movie map of High­lands

The Oban Times - - News 11 -

FILM buffs can fol­low in the foot­steps of their favourite char­ac­ters and tour the High­lands with the help of a new ‘movie map’.

In a joint pro­ject be­tween Visit Scot­land and High­land coun­cil, the map high­lights 50 film­ing lo­ca­tions in the re­gion, fea­tur­ing ev­ery­thing from Hol­ly­wood block­busters to low-bud­get hor­rors.

As well as world-fa­mous land­marks, Glen­finnan viaduct, Eilean Do­nan castle and Glen­coe, the guide fea­tures lesser known lo­ca­tions and a sec­tion ded­i­cated to Skye.

Coun­cil­lor Au­drey Sin­clair, chair­woman of High­land coun­cil’s plan­ning, de­vel­op­ment and in­fra­struc­ture com­mit­tee, said: ‘The High­lands has a great history of be­ing used as a movie lo­ca­tion and we also know this can be a sig­nif­i­cant fac­tor in en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to visit the High­lands to ex­pe­ri­ence our fan­tas­tic scenery.’

Jenni Steele, Visit Scot­land’s film and cre­ative mar­ket­ing man­ager, added: ‘This fan­tas­tic map is an in­dis­pens­able guide to movies shot in the High­lands.’

The map is avail­able from Visit Scot­land in­for­ma­tion cen­tres and to down­load at www.visits­cot­land.com/films
