Glen­finnan in TV ad­vert spot­light

The Oban Times - - Lochaber Times & Oban Times -

Bot­tled wa­ter firm High­land Spring filmed its lat­est ad­ver­tise­ment in Glen­finnan last week, writes Katie Cara­bine.

The Perthshire-based com­pany chose to shoot scenes with the Ja­co­bite Steam train trav­el­ling across the world-fa­mous Glen­finnan Viaduct for the ad­vert last Wed­nes­day, April 12.

Florence MacLean, a guard on the Ja­co­bite train, said: ‘The film crew were in Glen­finnan all day on Wed­nes­day. They were get­ting out­side shots of the train on the viaduct and there may have been an ac­tor up on the hill run­ning down to catch the train. They were de­lighted with the shots they got.’

A spokesper­son from High­land Spring said: ‘The ad­vert will be fea­tured on TV later this year. Prove­nance is key to High­land Spring and this will be a key mes­sage for us.’

Glen­finnan is a pop­u­lar site for film­ing and the viaduct is per­haps best known as be­ing fea­tured in the Harry Pot­ter film fran­chise.

Glen­finnan has also fea­tured in other films in­clud­ing High­lander, TV shows such as Tag

gart, Monarch of the Glen and Rock­face, and TV ad­verts for Audi, Peu­geot and Scot­tish Field magazine, to name a few.

Ms MacLean said: ‘Through­out the year we have peo­ple film­ing in Glen­finnan. It’s def­i­nitely good for busi­ness.’

A spokesper­son for Glen­finnan Sta­tion Mu­seum added: ‘The viaduct brings a lot of peo­ple in. There’s an in­flux of vis­i­tors in the sum­mer.’
