Skye plays host to Hollywood samurai film
SCENES from the latest Hollywood blockbuster filmed in Scotland saw samurai warriors ride through the countryside on horseback.
Part of 47 Ronin, starring Keanu Reeves, was shot at Neist Point on Skye last week.
The 3D movie, which is scheduled for release next year, has a £139 million budget and most of the filming has been done in London and Hungary over the past two summers.
A crew on a helicopter filmed horses running on the headland, which is being used as the backdrop to a Japanese winter.
Reeves, who was not in Skye for the filming, plays a half-Japanese, half-British character called Kai.
