Edinburgh Castle Overlooking the Streets of Edinburgh, Scotland

Hollywood loves magnificent settings, allure, and places that spark our imagination.

It’s no surprise that the movie business has had a love affair with Scotland for years. While there, explore the footprints of classic movies and their stars.

Callander is a colorful town and the gateway to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.  Explore Doune Castle, used in the movie Monty Python and The Holy Grail.  Doune also co-stars in The Game of Thrones.

Glencoe, a charming village, has starred in many movies including Harry Potter & Rob Roy. Visit Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland’s most beautiful castles, and featured in many Hollywood movies, including The Highlander, The World is Not Enough, Rob Roy, Loch Ness, Monty Python & The Holy Grail, Entrapment, and Elizabeth: The Golden Age & Made of Honor.  (Thirsty?  Nearby Blair Athol Single Malt Distillery is one of the oldest working distilleries in Scotland.)

End your Scotland movie vacation in Edinburgh, and visit Rosslyn Chapel.  With its unique sense of mystery and wonder, it was showcased in the Da Vinci code.  Pull out the popcorn and enjoy.
