If you’ve been following our blog, you’ve probably noticed that Scotland has an incredible amount of natural diversity when it comes to landscapes – not to mention beautiful castles, a rich historic legacy, and mysterious folklore . This makes it one of the most visited countries in the world, and not surprising that many films and TV series have been filmed in Scotland over the years! Read on to find out which Scottish filming locations will lead you to the same places as your favourite fictional characters.
Today, we will share with you 3 of the most iconic Scottish Film Locations that you can visit on one of our Easyways Walking Treks.
- Doune Castle
This Castle, located near Stirling, is well known among fans of the TV series Outlander as Castle Leoch, back in the 18th Century. Before that, it featured in Monty Python as the Castle of Guy de Lombard. The castle and its grounds are open to visitors, and offers an audio tour narrated by Monty Python’s Terry Jones!
Visit Doune Castle from the Rob Roy Way
- Glenfinnan Viaduct
The Glenfinnan Viaduct is known to millions of people throughout the world thanks to its part in the Harry Potter film series. The iconic Hogwarts Express glides over the viaduct twice a year, ferrying students to and from the wizarding school. The bridge is located west of Fort William and was completed 118 years ago! If you fancy a train ride with breathtaking views, then hop on the Jacobite express, which runs from April to October.
Visit Glenfinnan Viaduct from The West Highland Way or Great Glen Way.
- Glen Coe
In Skyfall, the James Bond film, Glen Etive, a road with a stunning mountains background near Glen Coe, is featured. If you want to experience this breathtaking view and all that Glen Coe has to offer, a walking holiday across the highlands might be perfect for you!
