Scotland may have produced its fair share of top Hollywood names, but the country itself is a magnet for the silver screen too! Our jaw-dropping scenery provides just the perfect backdrop for the camera with its rugged landscape and ethereal geological features which have everyone in awe on the other side of the screen. Admit it – including you! Film buff or not, follow the country’s movie trails and in the footsteps of your favourite characters, discovering sprawling beaches, ancient castles, rugged mountains, rolling hills, distinctive cities and picturesque towns and villages. Here’s a wee Star Trek fact to get you started: Linlithgow in West Lothian is the reputed future birthplace of Montgomery ‘Scotty’ Scott, who was played in the original series and seven movies by the late Canadian actor James Doohan and is portrayed in the rebooted films by Simon Pegg. In this, the 50th anniversary year of the series, you can visit a special exhibition at Annet House Museum in Linlithgow.
